Amazing Video

Traditional Chinese lion dancing requires a lot of hard work, but this footage shows the skill hidden beneath the costumes.

Duong Van Chung from Vietnam wished to show people the incredible discipline that goes into the dance.

Chinese lion dancing usually involves large costumes and masks which can conceal the movements beneath.

The video shows Duong training with the rest of his team, running across pillars high in the air and maintaining perfect balance.

Duong said, “I want to show people the lion dance tradition and the discipline of this practice.”

“It’s so hard because the sport costs a lot of sweat and tears.”
