Lion dancers perform the traditional dance in Chinese culture, in which performers mimic a lion's movements in a lion costume. The lion dance is often mistakenly referred to as dragon dance. An easy way to tell the difference is that a lion is operated by two people, while a dragon needs many people. Also, in a lion dance, the performers' faces are covered, since they are inside the lion. In a dragon dance, the performers can be seen since the dragon is held upon poles. Basic lion dance fundamental movements can be found in most Chinese martial arts.
Kim: Whoa did you see that dragon dance it was awesome!
Johnathan: No, that was a lion dance, because it was only two people, the dance we saw 2 weeks ago was a dragon dance because you could see a group of bodies holding the dragon's body. Plus, in lion dancing I have to lift the other person's weight.
Kim:Oh wow, I didn't know that, either way they're all crazy hot.
