Recipient of the One Moment Award in the 360 Filmmakers Challenge Spring 2016

At Thurgood Marshall High School, students wanted to demonstrate the diversity of their community. This video puts you at the center of the action as students perform the Lion Dance, a form of traditional dance in Chinese culture and other Asian countries in which performers mimic a lion’s movements in a lion costume to bring good luck and fortune.
