Dragon dances are cancelled this year
“Dragon dances are cancelled and lion dancers cannot perform at many public spaces this year due to the Covid-19 restrictions.
These are among stricter infection control measures for lion dance troupes this Chinese New Year announced by the Singapore Wushu Dragon and Lion Dance Federation on Sunday (Jan 17). The national organisation oversees the promotion of wushu, dragon and lion dance activities, and issues the permits for “cai qing” activities… Troupes are expecting huge drops in revenue this year.”
These guys at Qing Wei Lion & Dragon Cultural Troupe brought Traditional Lion Dancing Online!
And here’s how they do it:
Priced at $238
A live lion dance performance will usually cost $688 and above. They reduced the pricing to $238 as they bring it online, so as to attract more customers as well.
After the live performance, their God of Fortune mascot will travel to your location for a photo session, as well as to pass you the lion dance scroll and auspicious red packets! How cool is that?
