新春暢想曲:

Cleveland Cavaliers Celebrate Chinese New Year with Dragon Dance

by Wayne Wong
 

 

Among the many Chinese New Year celebrations that have been happening in Northeast Ohio, one of the most well attended was the Cleveland Cavaliers vs Brooklyn Nets Chinese New Year basketball game on Jan 27. In addition to the over 20,000 people in attendance, the game was broadcast on Fox Sport Ohio and was streamed live on Tencent in China to millions. To celebrate Chinese New Year, the game included two fantastic on-court performances. The first by nationally known acrobat Red Panda, Krystal Niu, who balances flipped bowls onto her head while atop a 7-foot unicycle. Secondly, a spirited performance was provided by the 14 member OCA Cleveland Dragon Dance Team, which incorporated acrobatics by the Cavs Scream Team into the routine. This is the second year the OCA Dragon team has performed during the Cavs New Year game. In addition to the performances, the Cavalier players wore commemorative New Year shooting jerseys, Year of the Rooster dolls were handed out, and special events and display tables were located throughout the arena.
With China being the second largest market for basketball and the NBA, the Cavs have been able to grow fans not just because of stars like LeBron James, and being the Champions, but through outreach and diverse cultural activities such as the New Year celebration. The OCA Dragon is a partnership with C.I at CSU. In addition to the Cavaliers game, the OCA Dragon Team also performed along with the Kwan Lion Dance family at Asian Town Center on Jan 29. Next, see the OCA Dragon Dance performance at Great Northern Mall on Sunday Feb 5 at 2:00 near the food court. Happy New Year! (Photos by Ed Wong)
