About:

The Dragon Dance captures the very symbol of Chinese New Year.

Chinese New Year is on the 16th February and 2018 is the Year of the Dog. Traditionally, New Year was a time for the Chinese to pray to their ancestors as well as to all the gods.

Highlights include the Lantern Festival on the 15th night, spending time with family, eating lots of food and being extra kind to dogs (the second day is believed to be the birthday of all dogs).
 

Our Chinese New Year Dance workshops are suitable for all ages and incorporate traditional Chinese dragon or lion heads.

As part of our workshops we are able to work with a class at a time across a school day and create an exciting dance performance. These class performances can even be showcased at the end of the school day for everyone to enjoy.

We encourage schools to allow the children to wear red for our dance session, as traditionally it's believed that the colour will ward off evil spirits.

Our Chinese New Year Workshop is a great way to enjoy this topic for children at Key Stage One or Key Stage Two
