Nightcliff Seabreeze Festival

Hopefully you caught the spray of colour from our beautiful Jade Dragons dancers at the Nightcliff Seabreeze Festival.
They performed an energetic ribbon dance which features dancers whirling long strips of silk through the air.
There is a story that attributes the beginning of the Chinese ribbon dance to a man who saved a Han dynasty emperor from an assassination attempt by blocking the sword with the silk from his sleeve.
