Lion Dance - the traditional dance form is an 'integral event' during Chinese New Year celebrations and other festivities in Asian countries.

To worship the God of Good Luck and Prosperity, people wear Lion costumes and mimic movements of the Lion in different groups.

On the 8th day of the Chinese New Year festivities, everyone from Redwoods Advance got together at Shaw towers for the Lion Dance performance, so as to celebrate the New Year in a traditional manner.

The traditional dance performance included two-Lions and a Cai Shen, the Chinese God of wealth. Since, it is the New Year of the Horse, the Lion dance performers even went the extra miles with the idea of a HORSE 'shaped with mandarin oranges and pineapples'.

Redwoods Advance Singapore wishes everyone a FRUITFUL year, ahead.
