I LOVE lion dances! The athletic ability of the dancers is just…astounding. Yes, keep in mind every time a lion stands on its hind legs, that’s the guy in the back holding the head guy up on his shoulders.
And they are sill fine puppeteers through it all. he heads move and blink and twitch their ears,giving you the illusion that the lions are completely real….you believe!
Recorded on January 27, 2009,this was the lion dance performance at the Shatin Racegrounds prior to the opening day of races for 2009 – Year of the Ox.
