The Golden Turtle Lion Dance Association will celebrate the lunar new year with a performance from noon to 1 p.m. Saturday at the Davis Farmers Market. The troupe, a student-run, cultural performing arts club based in Davis, will perform on the oak tree deck in Central Park, Fourth and C streets.

Lion dancing originated in China, with some creation stories pointing to India. The dancing takes movements from Chinese martial arts and adds drums and cymbals to represent the heart of the lion. Lions are used to summon good luck and good fortune as well as to exorcise evil spirits.

After performing at the market, the Golden Turtle Lion Dancers will provide store blessings in downtown Davis.

The Golden Turtle Lion Dance Association performed for the 2011 lunar new year at the Davis Senior Center. They also have performed for the Asian American Association in Young Hall at UCD; at Armijo High School in Fairfield; at the Asian Pacific Culture Night in Freeborn Hall; at Korematsu Elementary School in Davis; and at Vietnam Village Health in Milpitas.
