This was taken at home during Chinese New Year two years ago. It is customary for businesses and sometimes homes to invite a lion dance troupe to come and make a whole lot of noise. There’s probably a very deep cultural meaning behind the lion dance, but heck, all we care about is starting the year with a BANG!
I trained on lion dancing for a year or two when I was practicing kungfu as a kid, but I never made the “main team”. It feels weird seeing mostly Indians in lion dance troupes nowadays. I mean, this is supposed to be a Chinese cultural thing, right?
