We went to the Chinese Lantern Festival in Columbus, Ohio. The dancing was my favorite part. There were acrobats, a face changer, and four dancers.
The acrobats did acrobatics. They first did contortionist acts. They bent their bodies in ways that didn’t seem humanly possibly. They also each had four sticks that they were spinning plates on. They turned around and stood up on each other while having plates spinning. Then after that, they squeezed themselves inside barrels and went completely through! They folded up their bodies and went through.
There was a face changer. He could change a mask into another mask in a split second.
There were also dancers. They did a Tibetan dance and a Mongolian dance. There were four dancers.
There were lots of lanterns, some spinning. These are some of the lantern displays that we saw:
- candy canes
- dancing fairies
- china dishes
- purple and blue clouds
I hope I come again!
