The group of 16 dancers, originating from the Chaoshan region in South China's Guangdong province, where the art form originated, offered a sensory cultural feast to the people of the United Kingdom.

At noon, the event reached its climax on the center stage in Trafalgar Square, with notable figures from the political and business sectors of China and Britain participating in the eye-dotting ceremony of two lions, symbolically awakening them.

Once awakened, the lions performed a lively flying dance, with acrobats hidden under the costumes jumping up and down on 3-meter-high poles, drawing enthusiastic applause from the crowds.
