About This Lesson

Construct a lion puppet to use in a lion dance in celebration of the Chinese New Year.

During the Chinese New Year, lion dancer troupes from martial art schools or Chinese associations visit houses and shops to perform the lion dance. This dance is thought to scare away evils spirits and bring good luck. They are often accompanied by drums, gongs, and bells. The most common colors for the lion dance are red to represent bravery, green for friendship, and gold to represent liveliness.
