Lion Dance called Wu Shi in Chinese and also known as the lion lantern is a traditional form of dancing where performers put on lion costumes and imitate the movement and actions of a lion which is accompanied by the music of beating drums, cymbals, and a gong. The Lion is believed to be an auspicious animal that brings good luck, prosperity and longevity, thus this dance performance is done for good luck during the Chinese New Year known as Spring Festival and during other celebrations.
The Lion Dance is considered as a folk art that has spread across the world through Chinese communities and immigrants that have settled in different countries. There are two main forms of the Chinese lion dance, the Northern Lion and the Southern Lion. Both forms are commonly found in China.
