Lion Dances @ Naza World CNY Celebration

Just yesterday, I dropped by Naza World over in PJ to catch their Chinese New Year Lion Dance performances. The Kun Seng Keng Dragon & Lion Dance Association troupe came all the way from Muar to perform for us that afternoon. Being the 2010 and 2011 Champion in the World Lion Dance Competition, I went expecting a good performance and they did not disappoint.

Arriving just after 1pm, the place was packed with families and people coming from all over to Naza World to join in the festivities. I had to park a distance away and walked huffing and puffing to the venue but it was all worth it when I heard the loud drums. It was Naza's auto car showroom, and I did not miss the chance to walk in to appreciate the beauty of all the exotic cars on display.

It wasn't long before the the Lion Dance went to the front amidst deafening drums to begin their dance on these really high stilts. It was a feast for the eyes as we saw the lions danced and jumped around doing near impossible acrobatic moves on those stilts. Even though I was standing under the hot relentless afternoon sun, I still persevered on to record some videos to put up here. Check them out below.

It was a good lion dance performance

In fact, while I was loitering inside the huge Naza Auto Mall, these Bernama TV folks actually came over to ask me on what I thought about the event. I did mention I expected more acrobatic acts from the lions, now who doesn't? We always expect more than we are shown.

Overall it was a really good experience, watching Lion Dances during Chinese New Year was part of my Chinese New Year must-do list, and I am glad I took some time off to enjoy this year's Naza World Chinese New Year Celebrations. So have you caught and watched some lion dance performances lately?
