    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Dragon dance team?

    Has anyone had been in a dragon dance team? I just did a performance with one, and it was a lot harder than I thought it would be.

    I'd like to hear anyone's experience with it.

    Thanks

    I've been a lion dancer in a parade also featuring dragon dance, but that's about it.

    No, I haven't done a lion dance. I mean the one with more than 7 people.

    Oh, that's why I wanted to clarify; the answer is no then.

    Dragon dancing is for people who can't do Lion dancing. (chuckle)

    Dragon dance = here hold this pole, and make sure you keep in step with the guy in front of you.

    Lion dance = here hold his heavy thing over your head for an hour, dance, show off your amazingly strong kung fu legs, and cut up oranges and lettuce for the nice shop keepers who give you the hong bao.

    Dragon dancing is line dancing to "Electric Slide" vs. Lion Dancing which is like busting out the Moonwalk for the first time.

    But kids love both, and that's what matters to me, personally.

    Now I know you're just trying to start trouble. Walking around with it isn't hard, but some of those tricks are definitely difficult to co-ordinate. You saw the video, right?

    Yep, and I have done and am not a big fan of Dragon dance, hence the snark.
