About Hong De Lion Dance Association

Minimize

The Association The Hong De Lion Dance Association (墨爾本弘德國術會) was formed in April 2008 by a group of passionate lion dancers. The founding members formed the Committee of the Association. The Hong De Lion Dance Association is a member of the International Hong Teck Association. In 2013, Dragon Dance was introduced and our name has been changed to Hong De Dragon and Lion Dance Association.

Even though we are a newly formed Association, our instructors have over 20 years experience in the art of Chinese Lion Dance. The Association aims to teach and promote the art to the community. Our instructors have been taught and inspired by Sifu Deng Chi Tang in the art of Futsan (Foshan) style lion dancing and by Sifu Siow Ho Phiew (Xiao Fei Hong) in the art of Hoksan (Heshan) style of lion dance. Both lion dance masters have influenced the performing styles of our lion dancing.

The Name Hong De Guo Shu Hui (in Pinyin) was the name given to us by Siow Sifu. ‘Hong’ (弘) means great or magnificent and is part of Siow Sifu’s name. ‘De’ (德) means virtue or morals. ‘Guo Shu Hui’ (國術會) translates to Chinese (Martial/Lion Dance) Arts Association.

Our Motto Our motto is in the poem written by Siow Sifu.  It translates to passing the Chinese culture/traditions to the next generation outside of China (ie overseas).
