Dancing in the Chinese New Year
Shaylene Vilu, 3, watches as Vancouver Chinese-dance instructor Jessica Yue performs with ribbons at a family Lunar New Year event at the Firehall Centre for the Arts in North Delta last Sunday.
The event included crafts, food and a dance workshop.
In Chinese culture, 2012 is the Year of the Dragon. The dragon symbolizes power, strength and good luck, and those born in Dragon years are thought to be brave, innovative, ambitious and highly successful.
