One of the wonderful things associated with Chinese New Year celebrations (which is still going on as it lasts 15 days), is the Lion Dance. Here are some photos and a video that I took during a performance by a lion dance troupe at a friend’s home in Malaysia. To make it more interesting, the dance is carried out by the lion dancers as they prance around on top of poles some 2-3 metres off the ground. Yes, this is “pole dancing” the Chinese Lion Dance style. “Pole dancing” by men in costumes.
Astute readers will have noticed that the Squirrel is making repeated references to “pole dancing”. This is a thinly veiled and brazen attempt to get more hits on this blog from people googling “pole dancing”. Anyway, now that you are here, get your brain out of the sewer and be enlightened by some culture.
