Celebrate the Year of the Rooster with GK and Peabody Essex Museum! There will be music, art making and other traditions, including…liondance! Here’s the schedule for our performances:
Cubs Lion Dance 11am – 11:30am | Atrium
Help us kick off the festival with a lion dance performance by The Cubs of Gund Kwok. These young dancers (ages 6 to 9) have mastered the strength, skill, and coordination required to perform this tradition.
Lion Dance 11:30am – 12pm | Atrium
Gund Kwok Asian Women’s Lion Dance Troupe, the only all-women lion dance group in the country, performs this traditional dance to ward off evil for the coming year. After the show, talk to some of their performers and get up close with their costumes.
