Lion dance brings good cheer and wonder to the community, and of course, luck. 

Lion dance is an integral part of our school. Students learn lion dance to improve their agility, awareness, endurance, and how to work in a team of two as a part of a larger group. Students learn to prepare for different performance venues, and to expect last minute changes.

We perform on floors, traditional stages, streets, sidewalks--just about anywhere, anytime, but not in the rain. We have a wide range of lions and dragons for special events.
