CHINESE NEW YEAR - CHINESE LION DANCE ACT TO HIRE - LONDON, MANCHESTER & UK

CHINESE THEMED DANCERS TO HIRE- RIBBON  & FAN DANCERS MANCHESTER

For Chinese New Year parties the Chinese Lion is perfect to add instant atmosphere, colour and excitement.

Energetic, colourful and we think totally adorable! The Chinese Lion is an ausipicous animal who it is believed brings good luck, particulary for Chinese New Year (or the Spring Festival). There is a wonderful history behind the traditional Chinese Lion Dance

For total wow factor and to really make a statement we would recommend with live musicians which are traditionally drum, cymbol and gong. According to Chinese Folk Lore; the drum symbolises the Lions heart beat , the gong and the cymbols are to ward off evil spirits

CHINESE LION DANCE HISTORY - STYLES OF LIONS
There are various styles of lions and lion dances, though the biggest distinction is the Northern and the Southern. The Northern lion dance was used for entertaining the Imperial Court, the lions showed more of a lion’s flowing mane, the appearance similar of a fu lion, a Pekinese dog.
The Southern dance is more symbolic as mentioned above and preformed during Chinese New Year celebrations.
The Southern lions are divided into two main groups, the Hok Shan and the Fat Shan lions.
The Hok San Lion has a straight mouth, a curved horn, and a short tail, the Fat San lion has a curved mouth, a pointed horn, and a long tail.


As well as Chinese New Year The Chinese Lion dance can be performed at all big occasions, parades, shop and business openings, birthdays
