Children are always the big fans of lions. The Children Lion Dance “Competition” on last Sunday really made their dream came true coz they themselves could become the lions. More than 12 groups signed up for the game.
None of the kids was trained, and that’s what made it so fun. The children could choose small or big lion for the competition, but most boys preferred the bigger lion head that seemed so heavy to them, and the lions looked like something else. My first time seeing so many “mutation” lions around. So funny but cute.
One or two groups were doing quite well. For some, the head and tail “lost communication”. I also laughed, sorry, couldn’t help it… But if you ask me to try, I would also end up like them. It is not as easy as we see. I took a lot of funny pictures. You can see them in my photo album.
Even the non-Chinese children were also eager to try lion dance. Don’t be surprised if you see them become a great lion dancer in the future. In Sabah, non-Chinese lion dancers are very common. It has become a sport for everyone.
