The Chinese Lion Dance is believed to bring good luck and drive away evil spirits.  The lion is a symbol of power, wisdom, and good fortune in Chinese culture. The lion dance is performed to bring good luck and prosperity to the community or business where it takes place. 
 
The loud drumming, cymbals, and movements of the lion are believed to scare away evil spirits and negative energy. This aspect of the dance is particularly emphasized during the Chinese New Year to ensure a fresh start and a prosperous year.
 
The lion dance is often performed by a team of two dancers—one handling the lion's head and the other the tail. This requires coordination and cooperation, symbolizing unity and harmony within the community.
 
Overall, the Chinese lion dance serves both cultural and symbolic purposes, bringing communities together in celebration and expressing hopes for a prosperous and auspicious future.


Each performance is up to 10 minutes in length and includes 3 musicians playing the traditional Chinese Lion Dance music which includes the Lion Drum, Cymbals, and Gong. Each Lion requires 2 Lion Dancers.
