The Lion Dance

After a long journey, friend, Master Deb Leong was finally able to realize her dream and open her own karate studio. On Sunday, she had an Open House and what a grand celebration it was. Allan Fung, Mayor of Cranston, RI cut the ribbon opening the new business. The party was done up royally with great food and fabulous cakes, but the high point of the festivities was the Lion Dance performed by the talented Rhode Island Kung Fu Club. The dance is thought to bring good fortune.

I tried to get a video of the dance, but it didn't turn out. This is what it looked like though the lion was purple.

If you're in the Cranston area and are interested in karate classes, you can visit Master Deb's web page: Villari's Martial Arts Center for more information.T'ai Chi and QiGong classes are also offered.
