Lion Dance

If one traces back to the roots and history of lion dance, one would discover that lion, the animal itself, did not exist in China. The "Lion" itself, was a creature that people worshipped as Gods, to rid of sickness and drought. The history of Chinese worshipping animal creatures as Gods can be tracked back all the way to the Han Dynasty.

Dragon Dance

In April 2013, our Association added Dragon Dance to our performance repertoire. We are very honoured to have Dragon Master, Sifu Roger Ting Wan Kee from Singapore Dragon & Lion Dance Association to coach us Fuzhou Style Dragon Dance. In August 2015, we became part of the International Fuzhou Dragon Dance Alliance.
