ROARING FOR THE NEW YEAR

09 February 2016

The lion dance is tradition every Chinese New Year for it is believed that the energetic and noisy performance - complete with cymbals, gongs and drums - chases away ghosts, evil spirits and bad luck. We visited the KLKSK Lion Dance team at their training facility in Kampung Baru Subang as they prepared for a busy season ahead. For members of this team, the training doesn’t stop when the Chinese New Year festivities end. The members, ranging from ages 8 to 35, train all year round for a grueling schedule of competitions that take them all over Malaysia and overseas as well. One does not need to have a background in acrobatics or martial arts to be part of their team – KLKSK provides training to all interested parties for free.
