Learning the moves and secret language used by Chinese lion dancers around the world was all part of the ‘‘how to become a lion dancer’’ workshop held last week in Lawrence.
Ten children from the area took part in the first of three workshop sessions conducted at the St John rooms, under the tutorage of Lisa Hanson, of the Otago Southland Chinese Association’s Dunedin lion dancers group.
Organiser Anne Cheng said she was very happy with the young attendees, who all seemed to grasp the initial moves and steps as they learned about the history of Chinese lion dancing and how to merge it with the music to entertain crowds.
