Kingsong used to be part of the Lion dance troupe which was managed by Mr. So (who was also the principal of the Capital Chinese Language school). Since last September, he went to Waterloo for University and was not able to join them anymore. This Chinese New Year, Chen got a phone call from Mr. So, who asked if the twins would be able to do the lion dance for the T&T New Year celebration
Of course they can. So the twins were sent to T&T on February 22, and after a few moments of tutoring on the lion dance, they were set to go. I was not there but know they were pretty excited that they learned how to do the lion dance and started earning an allowance.
Next was the opening ceremonies for the Zichan International Arts Centre on May 30 and again Mr. So asked Chen if the twins could go. This time I was able to witness their performance.
The twins formed a yellow baby lion. Rose, who seemed to be more athletic, performed the lion head and Cherry followed her as the tail. With a little formal training, they seemed to be at a loss at first. Rose just wandered around and Cherry kept wagging the tail. But after a few moments they were able to follow.
At the end of the performance, the audience was surprised to see that this lion was performed by two kids. Cherry and Rose were very proud as they heard the compliments.
