Lion and dragon dance is a form of traditional dance in Chinese culture.
The lion and dragon dance is usually performed during the Chinese New Year.
The Chinese lion dance is sometimes mistakenly referred to as dragon dance.
An easy way to tell the difference is that a lion is normally operated by just two dancers,
while a dragon is longer and needs many people.
In a lion dance, the performers' faces are only seen occasionally, since they are inside the lion.
In a dragon dance, the performers' faces can be easily seen since the dragon is held on poles.
