Lion Dance Asia Society Lion dance is a form of traditional dance in Chinese culture, in which performers mimic a lion’s movements in a lion costume. The lion costume is operated by a pair of dancers. The dancers combine forming the back and fore legs of the beast, mimicking the motions of a single animal by operating the eyes and moving the headpiece. The dance is traditionally accompanied by cymbals, a singular gong, drums and firecrackers. The instruments play beats which the lion responds too and wards off bad luck.
