Chinese dragons are believed to bring good luck, and the dragon dance is the center of many Chinese festivals. Chinese dragon costumes accommodate from four to ten or more people. The dragon's body is made from brightly colored silk. The head is made of fiberglass reinforced plastic. Bamboo poles are used to manipulate the dragon's body in an undulating dance symbolizing the power and dignity of the dragon. The body, draped over boxes or hoops, holds its flexible shape during the dance. The front person carries a bamboo pole covered in brightly colored silk, and waves it as if to entice the dragon. Children's Chinese dragon costumes are smaller than the adult size, accommodating from four to six people. The plastic head generally has red, glowing eyes and teeth. Colorful strands of streamers hang from the chin of the dragon like a beard, and sway to and fro during the dance. On some costumes, the mouth opens and closes as the dancers move along.
