As a national intangible cultural heritage, dragon and lion dance is an essential part of folk festivals and wedding banquets in South Guangdong. For more than 2,000 years, the dragon and lion dance has been passed down from generation to generation. It has also developed from a spontaneous and entertaining traditional cultural activity into a sports competition project with national characteristics and great ornamental value.
