The Organization of Chinese Americans (OCA) Dragon Dance Club is sponsored by the Confucius Institute at Cleveland State University and partners with T'Shaka Brown KungFu School, Yin Tang Dance and Asian Town Center.
The 12 person dance troupe performed at the Traveling the Silk Road exhibition grand opening at the Cleveland Museum of Natural History.
The Dragon Dance was intended to bring good luck and prosperity (and fun!) to the Museum and attendees.
So what do you do with a Dragon before the show? At the Cleveland Museum of Natural History you can let it hang out with the dinosaurs.
Enjoy these images and the video from the Dragon Dance performance.
