Heritage dances through the ages like a dragon

By HE QI in Shanghai | CHINA DAILY | Updated: 2020-02-14 00:00

Lu Dajie, a 72-year-old inheritor of the Pudong dragon dance, says he's glad the Shanghai Pudong New Area Sanlin Town Cultural Service Center has been assigned to protect the dance.

He says the government's continuous support over the past decade has enabled the dance, which is believed to be a 2,000-year-old rain-and-harvest ceremony, to undergo a revival.

It has been used in recent years to commemorate significant occasions, such as the opening ceremonies of new stores, festivals and competitions, Lu says.
