PHOTOS: Happy Hour
Featuring the Jiu Long Lion Dance Troupe
Each year we take Silverado Valley Ranch residents on a staycation around the globe. This year destinations have included the US, Europe, Asia. The culmination of our staycation Asia was an Asian happy hour. Residents were given a taste of the east by sampling a variety of sushi prepared by our culinary department. The featured event was the Jiu Long Lion Dance Troupe. The Lion Dance is an ancient, traditional Chinese dance performed to the beat of a drum by dancers in lion costumes. Our residents were delighted as they were encouraged to interact and pet the lions who would bat their eyes and lie down next to the residents. The troupe dancers were a group of local high school and college students trained in acrobatics and martial arts. This was a high energy, intense experience of Asian culture!
