  4. 4. The lion Dance <ul><li>According to experts lion dance originated over 1500 years ago, the lion itself is not native to China. The first one was brought to China as a tribute during the reign of the Emperor Shun (126-145) of the Han dynasty. But China had no zoos, and very few people had actually seen a lion. So how did they go about imitating the lion in their dances? </li></ul><ul><li>&quot;By looking at the animals around them&quot; Chinese lion dance can be divided into two broad categories: </li></ul><ul><li>The Northern style imitates the dog and the Southern the cat. The Northern or Beijing version is short, stocky and furry, much like an oversized Pekinese. It is mainly used by Chinese Circuses & acrobats entertaining audiences with their humour and mannerisms </li></ul>

  6. 6. Chinese ballroom dance <ul><li>From the Han Dynasty (206BC-220 AD) to the Wei Dynasty (220-265) and the Jin Dynasty (265-420), there was a kind of dance very popular on the parties of officials and aristocrats. People danced for social intercourse and making friends. The dance was just like today's ballroom dance. </li></ul><ul><li>During the dance, if one is invited, he or she should not decline, otherwise, he or she will be regarded as impolite. It is an insult to the one who offers invitation. </li></ul><ul><li>During the Tang dynasty (618-907), there was once another kind of ballroom dance very popular. The dance was called Da Ling , a custom on parties. </li></ul>
  7. 7. Dragon dance <ul><li>The Dragon Dance itself originated during the Han Dynasty and was started by the Chinese who had shown great belief and respect towards the dragon. It is believed to have begun as part of the farming and harvest culture, also with origins as a method of healing and preventing sickness. It was already a popular event during the Song Dynasty where it had become a folk activity and like the lion dance, was most often seen in festive celebrations. </li></ul><ul><li>As the dragon gives people a feeling of great respect, it is often called the Sacred Dragon. The emperors of ancient China considered themselves as the dragon. The Dragon is also the emblem of Imperial Authority. It symbolizes supernatural power, goodness, fertility, vigilance and dignity. </li></ul>
