There are many kinds of activites during Spring Festival.The dragon and Lion Dance are very popular performances of Spring Festival.At the beginning,the dragon dance was an activity to please the dragon to ask for rain.Now it is a form in celebration occasions.The dragons ususlly range from several meters to more than 100 meters long.Sometimes a man uses a pearl and entices the dragon to follow him.Lion dance needs more Wu shu skills than dragon dance.There usually are two personswho play the lion.One ,holding the lion's head,leads the dance and shows the lion's emotions.The other plays the body and the tail.
