Lion dance (simplified Chinese: 舞狮; traditional Chinese: 舞獅; pinyin: wǔshī) is a form of traditional dance in Chinese culture, in which performers mimic a lion's movements in a lion costume.
The lion costume may be operated by a single dancer, or more frequently by a pair of dancers. The single dancer springs about while energetically moving and shaking the head and operating the jaws and eyes. The pair of dancers, forming the back and fore legs of the beast, mimic the motions of a single animal as they move between platforms of varying elevations. The dance is traditionally accompanied by gongs, drums and firecrackers, representing the descent of good luck.

It is for me an unsual photo very surprising. In spite of a leak of light, a good composition and realization. Good work.
Have a good evening

The long/short poles provide you with a good frame foreground, stage lighting is fine, shadow not too harsh. Overall a good shot.

It never fails to amaze me, people with excellent sense of balance and dexterity in doing gravity defying stunts like this.
Do you have a shot when the lion is flying in the air? Would love to see that.

This unique lion is in good company and that pose is beautiful with excellent colors of the fur. Nice low light shot and well rendered tone in the frame.
Have a great week m,y friend.
