Lion Dances 2015

As part of our efforts to connect with Chinese culture, PE classes at the end of Semester 1 spend a month or so studying the art of lion dancing - a traditional centrepiece of Chinese New Year celebrations - and work in small teams to produce a performance. Here is a highlight reel of the final performances for assessment in class last Friday morning. The best pairs, as chosen by their classmates, will perform again during our New Year festivities this week.

The traditional percussion accompanying the performances was composed and recorded by Mr Karena's music students.

Links to full films of all the separate student team performances (in two views, one shot from a tripod and the other handheld) can be found here. [And links to some of last year's performances can be found here]
