The Lion Dance

This week in Mrs. Spaeth's music classes, the first and second graders learned about the Lion Dance. The people of China dance around as a lion during Chinese New Year, beleiving that the lion and the loud music will scare away the bad luck for the new year, leaving only good luck behind. Pictured are Mrs. Barile's class, dancing as the lion and playing drums and cymbals to celebrate Chinese New Year, which takes place on February 14th." ~Emily Spaeth (Photos: Mrs. Spaeth)
