If you’re looking for a quality Wushu dance performance, you should definite visit http://liondancesingapore.co/wushu-performance-singapore/ and have them do it for you. But first, why should you choose a Wushu dance instead of a lion dance? Well, first of all if you’ve seen the Disney film ‘Mulan’ back in the 90’s then you surely remember the part where Li Shang taught everyone under him some amazing Wushu techniques. It became even more popular by that time, but Wushu is not a simple fighting technique; a lot of rhythmic movements are involved.
The Wushu dance involves tons of styles and techniques which are grouped into categories. One type is the bare-hand styles and weapon-play. These would involve numerous weapons which are also grouped into categories like the short-range, long-range, flexible and double arms.
- Long-Fist: this would typically be a bout at the end of a person’s reach. The routine would involve quick, rhythmic and agile movements highlighted by various explosive and spectacular jumping techniques.
- Staff Play: the staff play is also known as the ‘Father of All Weapons’, this Wushu routine involves numerous fighting styles all seamlessly incorporated into one. The performers make use of semi-flexible wood; they use this type of prop because it lets them smash the staff into the ground without fear of breakage.
- Board-Sword-Play: while the staff play is known as the ‘Father of All Weapons’, the board-sword-play on the other hand is called the ‘Marshal of All Weapons’ because it’s the basic assembly of foot soldiers way back in the medieval period. The routine involves quick and explosive movements added with wild ferocity.
- Spear-Play: the spear-play has the title of the ‘King of All Weapons’. Out of all the weapons ever used, the spear has the widest reach and the sharp edge gives it its killing power.
