QILIN DANCE 麒麟舞

UPDATE (Last edited August 10th): Qilin Dance performed as planned! Great success! Will post photo/video of the event once we get it all sorted out.

---------------

The village is ready to do the Qilin dance. It's been nearly ten years since it was performed, and the teachers are getting old. Over a glass of date and crabapple liquor at He Zhongli's house, we agreed to get it going again this summer break.

Estimated show date: August 5th

First day of rhythm section practice:

He Wenfeng led a bit of purification and ceremony as we took the Qilin and related beasts from He Zhongli's house to the studio. It is a mysterious and holy thing, after all.
