The Heritage Chinese Language School Dancers will perform two dances at the festival:
The Lion Dance originated from Southern China and has many stories associated with it. In one of the stories, it was performed to ward off the legendary mythical monster called “Nian”. Now, the dance today signifys wealth and prosperity, most prominently performed during Chinese New Year. Performed by the Heritage Language School Lion Dancers
The Aboriginal Bamboo Dance began in China to celebrate the spring festival in July and August annually. It has continued to become a celebratory dance to signify happiness, enthusiasm and joy.
