An Off-the-Hook Performance

Chinese New Year is always very festive and celebratory. Tonight was action packed with martial arts, dragon and lion dances, crafts, and a variety of food vendors at the Chinese Cultural Plaza. The Wah Ngai Lion Dance Association showed off their lion pole dancing skills with their off the hook performance. They hopped and skipped to the beat of the drums and cymbals and moved so smoothly over the poles that it appeared as if the lion had no fear of falling. They had the crowd in the palm of their hands with each movement that the lion made. They cheered, whistled, and at times even cringed for the performers when the lion hit each daring step with perilous precision.
