Dragon dance is a popular form of ancient Chinese dance and performance. Like the lion dance, which was also called the dragon dance of the Analects, it is frequently seen at festive celebrations throughout China. In some areas, dragon dance is an important part of the Chinese heritage. However, there is no written evidence as to when the dragon dance started or how it became popular.
Dragon dance was frequently performed during the Chinese New Year parades, called the dragon dances. Chinese dragon dance performed during the Chinese New Year was typically fierce, exciting, extravagant and fun-filled, reflecting the spirit of the times. It was often performed by male dancers wearing elaborate dragon masks made of cloth and gold. They paraded through the streets wearing these masks, which often had a face drawn on it.
Dragon dance teams have evolved from just simple groups of individuals to professional teams. These teams have become very skillful at what they do. Dragon dance performances are very complex and require the performers to work together as a group. Each performer must learn his or her role and then must effectively play his or her part in order to be a successful dance team. A dragon dance team must be led by a leader who has experience in leading such a group of people as well as the ability to lead others in the dance steps. This requires someone with both the art of leading and the ability to inspire the other members of the group.
Dragon dance groups have also been very theatrical in their presentations. Dragon dances have often been used to entertain crowds at weddings, large public gatherings, fairs, and festivals. There is even a dragon dance genre of its own in the world of pop culture, with many contemporary artists displaying their skills by performing dragon dance numbers. As of late, there has been an increase in the dragon dance choreography that is being used in professional productions.
One of the most famous dragon dance performances that ever took place was at the Fourth International Dragon Festival held in Beijing during the 1970’s. The entire event was coordinated and supervised by the wife of the current Chinese President, Hu Jintao. Her husband chose the performers who would participate in this special event because they had all undergone rigorous training in ancient china. The four dragon dancers who came from ancient China, along with numerous dancers from other parts of Asia, performed their routines flawlessly.
Today, this Chinese art of dragon dance is still very popular among many Asian cultures. In fact, many new year’s celebrations in the United States feature a dragon dance routine as well as other types of martial arts. Dragon dance itself has been used for centuries as a way to honor the spirits of the dead. It is common for people who celebrate new years around the winter solstice to carry around a small collection of dragon body decorations which they use during the holiday in front of their front windows. As long as there are living dragons in the world, there will be celebration, and the Chinese have been celebrating this beautiful dance for thousands of years.
