The Lancers Lion Dance Club rang in the Year of the Pig with a school-wide performance recently, decorated with colorful costumes and graced with traditional Chinese drumming. The pig is the twelfth in the 12-year Chinese zodiac cycle and is known as a symbol of wealth in Chinese culture.
The student club consists of six middle and high school performers. In weeks leading up to the performance, they rehearse routines and delve deeper into the culture. The club will perform again next month at the annual Lancer Athletic Country Fair. All photos by Martha Nicholas.
