Overture Center Lion Dance and Demo

Today, Saturday 3/3/2012 was another exciting day for the ZYKFA Lion Dance Team and Taolu Team. The Lion Dance received great reviews from complete strangers as all six lions took over the main entrance of the building, the lion dancers included Samara, Piper, Maya, Kate, Ally, Ruby, Marissa, Aidan, Paul, Ben, Wesley, Rachel, Molly, Woody and Emma, Ali did a great job as the monk, even though I forgot to bring the fan!. The music also sounded excellent with CJ on the drum (with a brand spanking new stand), Elaine on the gong, Wei Li, Crosby and Nora on the cymbals (yes, three cymbal players!!!). Ben had his first banner drop, which he executed perfectly, and everyone loved how the lions played with the crowd.

The demo was great, with lots of applause for Jaia's King of Nine Province Staff set, Aidan doing his Double Hook Swords, the crowd gave a big "WOW" when he hooked them together and swung them around his head, Crosby and Kate's paired Wu Yi/Kai Me demo where the crowd loved Kate's splits and Crosby's triple kick and the grand finale being Paul doing the Dragon Straightword set which impressed everyone with his control and ease of movement. Thank you everyone that participated it was a great Zhong Yi day!!!
