Postcard US-3372308 to Finland shows a Kung Fu team performing the dragon dance at Chinatown Plaza in Las Vegas on February 22, 2015. Dancers manipulate the poles positioned at regular intervals along the length of the flexible dragon body, mimicking the supposed movements of this mystic creature in a sinuous, undulating manner.
Similar to the lion dance and often performing together, the dragon dance can usually be seen during the Chinese New Year celebrations. It was a highlight during the Year of the Monkey Spring Festival at Chinatown on Spring Mountain Road earlier today.
