Hey, y'all

Just wanted to see if there are any lion dancers out there. I've been doing lion dance through my wushu school since September. We're getting ready to perform on Feb 11 at our CNY banquet. I started out dancing but my knee couldn't handle the strain so I'm one of 4 drummers ( which is good because our show is 30 minutes) so we just switch off between the drum, cymbals, and gong. I am the "starting drummer" I do the first set of 3 bows, the high walk, low walk, and 2nd bows.

It'd be great to hear everyones experiences.
