Dragons Dance at Vancouver Olympics

Two of the International Taoist Tai Chi Society’s dragons traveled across the country from Orangeville to Vancouver for the 2010 Winter Olympics. With the help of almost 100 members, on February 14, the dragons danced before thousands of spectators at the athletic park in downtown Richmond, B.C., as part of a Chinese New Year celebration.

Measuring more than 330 feet, one of the dragons is the longest in North America. It requires 70 people to manipulate it. The second dragon measures 165 feet and it require 20 people to make it come alive. Both are used for grand openings and special celebrations of the Taoist Tai Chi Society.

The Olympic dragon dance was covered by international media. See complete coverage with videos and photos on our main website.
