Come to Bidi Walk in East Vic Park (adorned with Year of the Rabbit decorations!) to usher in the Lunar New Year with a traditional lion dance performed by Yaolin Kung Fu Association. 

Performed by two pairs of lions or more, lion dance is a form of traditional Chinese performance in which performers mimic a lion's movement dressed in a mythical lion costume performed by two people. 

The traditional dance is primarily performed by expert Kung Fu Martial Artists as it requires a substantial amount of strength, stamina, balance, bravery and Kung Fu skills to accomplish the dance. The routines, in general, are a test to detect whether the Lion Dancers are skillful enough to retrieve the auspicious object whilst they are met with obstacles blocking their ways.
