No, I am not a lion dance addict. In fact, I havenâ€™t lion danced at all this season! But if you want to know a lion dance addict, meet Andy Ta from Long Beach, California.
He dreams about lion dance, lion dances for breakfast, lunch and dinner, lion dances on the toilet, lion dances while brushing his teeth, and even lion dances!
Anyway, the real reason for this blog was to promote a video he directed for his class. The narrator in the video is Nathan Phuong, who only recently started learning lion dance last May with Andy. When I met him earlier in January during my trip to SoCal, he was already a great lion dancer full of dedication and enthusiasm. Enjoy!
