Lion Dance Team

The Lion Dance Team learns the traditional lion dance performed during Chinese New Year celebrations to bring good luck.  This year’s team got off to a slow start, with only two members but are now up to ten members.  The team has two lions, each of which requires two dancers.  They also have a wonderful huge drum to guide the dance.


Though the dance itself is a Chinese tradition, the team here is as multicultural as the student body.  That diversity is one of the things I will miss most when I leave this internship.  This school has the most diverse student population in the district.  It is like a microcosm of the ‘melting pot’  ideal only better – more like a perfect salad with unique and distinct ingredients that compliment each other while they each maintain their particular unique flavor.
