News on Hong De Lion Dance activities.

A mid-week lion dance performance at the re-opening of the Westpac branch at QV was well attended by over 100 guests. There was very little room for our lion to perform. A string of firecrackers were lit at the conclusion of the performance to declare the branch opened. Thank you to the branch manager, Judy Tran for booking us! Congratulations!

 We had a blast on the weekend performing again at Crown Palladium. This is our fourth performance at Crown this year! It was great to see the Palladium covered with hanging lanterns and lots of beautiful Singapore orchids as table decorations. Three lions performed as the opening act for the KPMG annual ball attended by over 700 guests. Thank you to Marcus from By Design for booking us and organising meals for our members!

Another first for Hong De - a performance on a football oval! We were invited by The Werribee Football Club to perform during half-time for their Multicultural Day match against Western Bulldogs. We had a shortened training session and everyone hopped into three cars and off we went. The weather was not too great on the day but fined up when we were about to perform. Even though we were cold, the sun was out and the African dancers before us (bare-chested) did not complained about the weather! Thank you Chris for inviting us to perform at Avalon Oval!

 We hosted a lion dance workshop for Ging Mo Academy from Perth on the weekend. Sifu Gawain Siu and his senior instructors were here in Melbourne for a Wushu competition and spent Saturday training with us. We met Sifu Gawain in Genting in 2008 and have kept in touch ever since. We spent the day training and in exchange the Ging Mo team showed us their Wushu competition routines. Both teams benefitted from the exchange. We wish them well in the Wushu competition. We would like to thank Sifu Gawain for the Acknowledgement Certificate for our Commitment, Generosity and Dedication to promoting Chinese Lion and Dragon Dancing in Australia. We hope to see them again in the near future. Thank you for visiting our Clubhouse.

 We had a very busy weekend with four performances over two days. After two shop openings on Friday, we had two weddings to attend on Saturday. The first one was for Linda and Brad at Manningham Receptions in Doncaster. We performed for the guests before the bridal party entered the room. The groom entered the room with a rickshaw carrying his bride. We finished off our performance afterwards. Then, we had to go to the city for our next performance at Crown for Nadia and Rere. Unfortunately, we did not take a photo at this reception. Thank you to both couples for inviting us to be part of your wedding celebrations. Wishing you all a very happy future together!

The wedding took place in the library of the Fitzroy Town Hall and our lion (which was a surprise for the guests) lead the couple outside to the steps of the Town Hall.

Festival in SaleOn the weekend, we travelled to Sale (about 2.5 hours from Melbourne) for the very first Face of Australia Festival. It was a Food, Wine and Music Festival with entertainment and food stalls for the entire day. We were very lucky that the weather was good enough for us to perform outside delighting many of the locals who attended, some of them have never seen a lion dance before! Thank you to Denise from Handen Special Events for organising the Festival and inviting us to perform!
