After the first day of camp Katherine announced that there would be three different lions this year and that she was to be the head of one. (One of her orphanage friends was the tail.) The dance is long and lively and exhausting to dance. So dancers work in teams, with one pair dancing for a while and then handing off the lion costume to a new pair. At camp, one team "woke" the lions and another danced the lions up and down the aisles. Katherine was on the second team.
The dance begins with drums.
The lions pretended to take naps and were awakened by a dancer with a ceremonial sword.
