Primary Workshops for Schools

Chinese Lion Dance Workshop

Our Chinese Lion Dance workshop is an opportunity to appreciate and experience one of the most historically fascinating areas of the world.  The lion dance is an important form of traditional dance in Chinese culture and incorporates many of the essential movements found in Kung Fu.

Your children will be awed by the spectacle that our highly skilled dancers will bring to your school beginning with a colourful and interactive demonstration which is designed to complement the sessions to follow.

Our Chinese Lion Dance workshop is delivered all year-round to celebrate this wonderfully colourful and dynamic culture and links perfectly with Chinese New Year, Cultural Weeks, International Days and Arts Weeks.
