Lions & Dragons Visit Sri Utama!

The Chinese New Year Lion Dancers made their way to Sri Utama schools on February 22, 2013, one of the last days of Chinese New Year.

Below, the clown taunts and teases the lions while the instruments in the back keep rhythm to all his movements.  Their eyes blink and their mouthes open and close so expressively that they each seem to have their own personlity!

Here, one of the not-so-brave little lions stops to ponder whether or not he can make it to the top!

After the lions have enjoyed teasing the children and honoring the elders of the school, the dragon takes a turn.

Afterwards, we get a chance to congratulate the troupe and wish them all the best of luck!

Happy New Year!
