* Explore: Wong Chinese Lion Dancers (1 p.m.) sponsored by SU’s Cultural Affairs Office. The Wong Chinese Lion Dancers perform the traditional southern Chinese Lion Dance. This style of Lion Dance has always been passed on from one generation to the next, from teacher to student. Unlike other forms of Lion Dance, the southern style has remained intact and has never been combined with others. It requires a great deal of physical strength and stamina as its movements are forceful and the equipment heavy. Practitioners must undergo rigorous training to develop these skills and to learn the many movements used to make the lion appear alive and strong. They must also learn to play the instruments used to accompany the lion and to direct its movements during the dance. Under the direction of Sifu Raymond Wong, the Wong Chinese Lion Dancers have become the foremost Lion Dance team in United States.
