Celebrate the New Year with traditional Liondance performers. The NY Chinese Cultural Center, a nonprofit cultural and educational institution, is dedicated to deepening the understanding and appreciation of Chinese culture in global and local communities. Chinese celebrations worldwide are often marked by the frolicking tricks of lions and their tamers. Lions are not native to China so they are viewed as quite mystical animals and believed to be very lucky.
A traditional dance frequently performed in celebration of the Lunar New Year, the Lion Dance was originally used to call for rain. Accompanied by thundering drums and traditional Chinese musical instruments, the lions frolic and cavort playfully, enticed by the magic of a silk flower ball.
