Unicorn-Lion-Dragon dance festival in Tet

Annual Unicorn-Lion-Dragon Dance Festival will be traditionally held on Tuesday evening, January 31 and Wednesday, February 2, 2017. Organizers require that each participating group has three main characters Unicorn-Lion-Dragon and Earth God. The groups may use minor characters like horses, Monkey King, Sha Seng and Zhu Bajie with good looking and distinctive appearance. Each group may join in all three kinds of performance with Unicorn, Lion, and Dragon or just take part in only one dance, depending on their competence. However, the dance must use two unicorns and one the Earth God.

All of the groups practice in serious manner and invest a lot of time and energy for their performance. Therefore, the dances are lissome and lively with right movement of the animals. The Dragon dance need more dancers than Unicorn and Lion dances and requires more effort in rehearsal.
In recent days, some groups such Ky Hoan, Minh Phuoc Duong, Trung Anh Duong and Thien Vuong have spent a lot of time practicing their unique dances as preparation for the competition at the festival.
The annual Quy Nhon Open Unicorn-Lion-Dragon Dance Festival organized by Quy Nhon city Centre for Culture-Information and Communication gradually becomes indispensable soup for soul on occasion of Tet Festival.
