SALISBURY—The Wong Chinese Lion Dancers return to Salisbury University during a special Chinese New Year dinner 4:30-7:30 p.m. Tuesday, February 5.
The Wong Dancers are the lead dancers of the annual Chinese New Year Parade in Washington, D.C. They perform from 5-7 p.m.
The lion dance is an ancient ritual based on Taoist principles that is used to drive away evil spirits or bad energy (chi). This is done by manipulating or directing the flow of one’s internal chi, forcing the undesired energy away. The techniques and knowledge are passed down or inherited through a family lineage.
The menu includes shrimp spring rolls, glazed salmon, Chinese vegetables, orange chicken, jasmine rice, longevity noodles, General Tso’s tofu and broccoli, longevity peaches and cream parfait, and Chinese doughnuts.
Sponsored by University Dining Services and the Office of Cultural Affairs, cost is $14.20, $8.55 for children 5 and under. Reservations are not required.
