Lion Dancing 舞獅

It is Chinese New Year and there must be lion dancing somewhere. It is really quite an art - and sport.

The lion head is quite heavy. Jumping around and waving the lion head on level ground is hard enough. Jumping around while waving the lion head on top of those long poles 梅花椿 is much harder. Perhaps the hardest is for the guy in the rear to hold up and to throw the guy in front onto the next set of poles. And the coordination.
