The Lion Dance Origins and History

 

Join Chris Young, owner of Gong Lung or Steel Dragon, a martial arts and lion dance studio in Ice House Studios in Lawrenceville, for an introduction into the origin and history of the Lion Dance. Chris teaches the Lion Dance to students in the Pittsburgh area. Young was introduced to the dance as a child in northern California. While shopping in San Francisco's Chinatown, Young often saw lion dances and developed a love for the art from as early as age 3 or 4.  Chris Young has been engaged in martial arts or gymnastics for nearly his entire life. He has over 20 years of Chinese martial arts experience in several styles. He started teaching over 10 years ago. While he teaches, Chris continues to train and improve his own kung fu and lion dance knowledge as well and studies Xing-Yi and Bagua in addition to Baiyuan Tongbei, Ying Jow Keun and Wu Tai Chi. He is a disciple of Master Zhang Yun of the Yin Cheng Gong Fa Kung Fu family, originally of Beijing, and his lion dance mentor is Corey Chan of San Francisco. Outside of the martial arts, Chris was also a Commissioner on the PA Governor's Advisory Commission for Asian American Affairs and the board of the National Association of Asian American Professionals - Pittsburgh Chapter.

The lion dance has a continuous history of over one thousand years, and its origins may reach back more than two thousand years. Many stories surround the lion dance and its origins. One of the more popular ones is that an Emperor of China had a dream where a creature resembling a lion saved his life from evil spirits. When he woke he declared the lion a symbol of good fortune. However, since lions are not native to China, artisans had no idea what they look like. As a result, they fashioned an animal with the attributes of other fortunate creatures: the dragon, the phoenix and the dog.

There is perhaps no art that encompasses Chinese culture, history and philosophy more comprehensively than lion dance. Over its long history, lion dance has incorporated elements of Chinese opera, classics of Chinese literature, Taoist, Buddhist and Confucian philosophies, Five Element theory, all sorts of varieties of symbolism from Chinese (and most specifically Cantonese) society, and Chinese martial arts.

The lion dance is now an integral part of not just Chinese culture, but of many Southeast Asian cultures such as Vietnamese, Korean, and Japanese. In fact, the most famous teams are probably from Malaysia.

There are many aspects to lion dance today, and lion dance has performed a number of different roles over history. For instance, lion dance was used to raise money and facilitate communication by revolutionaries attempting to overthrow the Ch'ing, or Manchu, Dynasty. Today, a lion dance can perform many types of purposes, including ceremonial, entertaining, competitive or some combination.

The lion dance is used in ceremonies ranging from the more formal and solemn to the more informal and joyous. Either way, the lion's purpose is to bring good fortune and to drive away any malevolent spirits that might be hanging around. The lion is almost always associated with auspicious acts and events, and must obey certain rules of propriety. These types of events can include house and business blessings, weddings, and other joyous occasions. Lion dance is used to open up a New Year, so it is commonly seen in Chinatowns throughout the country during Chinese New Year celebrations.

A lion dance can also be used to tell a story and simply entertain. Often, there are one or more other characters who interact with the lion, and in fact there can be more than one lion in a performance. These stories are always uplifting and resolved positively, in keeping with the positive nature of the lion. There is no such thing as a lion dance tragedy! Finally, there are various forms of lion dance competition. Malaysia in recent years has dominated this sport, which is often performed on poles reaching up to 12 feet high.

A lion dance typically revolves around a cheng, or puzzle. The cheng sets up the challenge that the lion has to solve according to rules and protocols of lion dance. Often, the chengs have specific purposes or meanings. For instance, "Auspicious Lion Welcomes the Bride" is for bringing blessings upon a marriage and "Drunken Lion" celebrates the togetherness of strong friendship. Some chengs are designed to rid the sponsor of bad fortune as well. Sometimes chengs are just performed for entertainment outside of their particular meanings. In any case, there are hundreds of chengs and sometimes new ones are even created. Often different props such as swords, daggers and spears are used. Additionally, tight ropes, benches, tables and other items may be used as barriers or platforms for the lion. There are a lot of variations, and each team may have a little bit of different ways of solving a cheng. So, lion dance isn't just one standard routine. There are many different lion dance performances and styles you may see that are different of each other. The important thing is that protocols are followed and the chengs are solved correctly. -Gong Lung

Virtual Yin Yoga

Monette Shuttleworth from the Himalayan Institute of Pittsburgh leads this monthly program. She will provide background, support tips and answer any questions! We will meet on the 3rd Thursdays of every month. Register below for entire series (cancel registration only if canceling for whole series).  

Yin Yoga is slow-paced and meditative in nature and serves to complement to more active yoga (Yang) styles. Yin Yoga emphasizes passive postures held for several minutes at a time, with muscles in a relaxed state. The connective tissue in and around the muscles and joints is targeted.  Ultimately, Yin Yoga promotes the vitality, hydration, mobility and strength of the connective tissue. It also enhances a balanced flow of energetic circulation leading to a state of calmness, contentment and an overall lasting feeling of relaxation. Please bring a yoga mat, a pillow, and beach towel to support your practice. Registration required to get Zoom link. Registration is for the entire series and you need not cancel unless you are cancelling for the whole series.

Ahab Beckons! Moby Dick (Virtual Program)

Join author and lecturer Abby Mendelson for Ahab Beckons!: Moby Dick, or The Whale a three part series June 11, 18 and 25 (register below for all lectures). 

Some have called Herman Melville’s massive opus the quintessential American novel, the well-spring from which every other piece of our fiction grows: sprawling, unsparing, obsessed and obsessive. Coded into a seafaring tale of a mad captain and his mixed-race crew, it’s American insanity, destruction of the natural world, imperialism, barbarism – and brotherhood and survival. As irresistible as it is overwhelming, there was never a better time to read it in-depth, in an annotated edition.

This event is sponsored by the Friends of Mt. Lebanon Public Library.

Virtual Author Visit with Matthew Clark Davison

In celebration of Pride Month, Matthew Clark Davison will join us via Zoom to discuss his new novel, Doubting Thomas.

Thomas McGurrin is a fourth-grade teacher and openly gay man at a private primary school serving Portland, Oregon's wealthy progressive elite when he is falsely accused of inappropriately touching a male student. The accusation comes just as Thomas is thrust back into the center of his unusual family by his younger brother's battle with cancer. Although cleared of the accusation, Thomas is forced to resign from a job he loves during a potentially life-changing family drama.

Davison's novel explores the discrepancy between the progressive ideals and persistent negative stereotypes among the privileged regarding social status, race, and sexual orientation and the impact of that discrepancy on friendships and family relations.

MATTHEW CLARK DAVISON is the author of Doubting Thomas (June, 2021) from Amble Press. He’s full-time faculty in Creative Writing at SFSU and creator and teacher of The Lab :: Writing Classes with MCD, a non-academic school started in 2007 in a friend's living room. The textbook version of The Lab , co-authored by bestselling writer Alice LaPlante, will be published by W.W. Norton in 2022. His prose has been recently anthologized in Empty The Pews (Epiphany Publishing) and 580-Split; and published in or on Guernica, The Atlantic Monthly, The Advocate, Exquisite Pandemic, Foglifter, Lumina Magazine, Per Contra, and others; and has been recognized with a Creative Work Grant, Cultural Equities Grant. Clark Gross Award for a Novel-in-Progress, and a Stonewall Alumni Award.

Ahab Beckons! Moby Dick (Virtual Program)

Join author and lecturer Abby Mendelson for Ahab Beckons!: Moby Dick, or The Whale a three part series June 11, 18 and 25 (register below for all lectures). 

Some have called Herman Melville’s massive opus the quintessential American novel, the well-spring from which every other piece of our fiction grows: sprawling, unsparing, obsessed and obsessive. Coded into a seafaring tale of a mad captain and his mixed-race crew, it’s American insanity, destruction of the natural world, imperialism, barbarism – and brotherhood and survival. As irresistible as it is overwhelming, there was never a better time to read it in-depth, in an annotated edition.

This event is sponsored by the Friends of Mt. Lebanon Public Library.

These programs will be conducted via the free video conferencing software Zoom and a Library staff member will be supervising the session. The Librarian coordinating the event will email each registrant a Zoom meeting invitation before the start of the program. Zoom is available as a free desktop (for Windows, MacOS, and Linux Operating systems) and mobile application for Android and Apple iOS devices.

There will be ample time for audience questions throughout the presentation. The events will take place on the following dates from 7 -8:30 PM.
