Lion Dance Routines

Our lion dancers are students, and teachers of Kung Fu. They study Kung Fu for some time and then are introduced to the basics of lion dance. Dancers also learn to drum. Our lion dance teams get stage instructions just before performing, and they are not afraid of challenges or last minute changes. They might work in unison, or they may split up performing tasks. They sometimes play an ancient unwritten story passed down through many generations of lion dancers. They are art, dance, music, luck.


Lion Inspires

Lucky Lions are not just about color, expressive movement, excitement and surprise. They are an expression of teamwork, strength, endurance and spirit. They embody the qualities we admire in each other. Those same qualities allow us to make luck for ourselves and make others feel lucky.
