Traditional Lion Dance

The goal of the project is to build a traditional lion dance costume and film a short about the making and use of the costume. Building the costume will acquaint those involved with the culture and engineering/designing process of such an art piece. Ideally the film will be used to recruit students to join a Stanford lion dance team, a new art form for our campus.

Funding is applied to...

Funds will go towards building materials, design research, and filming costs.Not only will this project eventually reach and benefit Stanford students, it will benefit my own training to become a mechanical engineer as I build the heads myself instead of purchasing them. An extra hundred hours of work may be needed, but I will learn a lot from the experience and also save money if I built my own instead of buying one commercially.

Project Goals

The goal of this project is to create an art piece that can serve as an introduction to Chinese/Vietnamese dance culture thorough lion dancing. Numerous colleges in Southern California and even Berkeley have a lion dancing team, allowing students to learn more about the dance and culture. Stanford does not have one yet. I hope to create the costume and also film and document the process, creating a sort of trailer or movie about lion dancing. This will be the first steps to what will hopefully be a new lion dance team on campus.Thanks to all supporters...
