London Based Chinese Lion Dancers
The Chinese Lion dance is a form of a traditional dance in the Chinese culture and is often used to celebrate weddings and events during the Chinese New Year festive period. The performances last approximately2x15 minutes or 3×10 minutes. The dance is a high impact performance by two performers involving various martial arts moves namely kung fu and wushu with the aesthetics of a lion. The lion can perform to recorded music or with live music that consist of Chinese Drums, Gongs and Cymbals.
For a better and more vibrant display, more lions can be used.
During an event the lion can be used to give out peeled oranges or gifts (to be organised separately) as part of a performance or used to mix and mingle for 2×20 minutes during a Chinese themed party. Contact
The lion dance is often mistakenly referred to as dragon dance. An easy way to tell the difference is that a lion is operated by two people, while a dragon needs several people normally seven perfomers. In a lion dance, the performers’ faces are covered, since they are inside the lion. In a dragon dance, the performers can be seen since the dragon is held upon poles.
The Lion can be made to perform with live music, normally chinese drums, gongs and cymbals or with recorded music. There is additional cost involved with using live music player for this performance.

I write as Principal of BSix Brooke House Sixth Form College in Hackney. We hired your Chinese dragon dancers last Thursday for two shows for our staff and students. They were fantastic and everyone loved the performance. (Everyone is saying that it was by far the best such performance they had ever seen).
Thank you again for creating such a joyous occasion.
All best wishes
– Ken (Warman) Principal
I would like to pass on my thanks to the two gentlemen (Chinese Lion Dancers London) who came to perform for us on Friday 19th February. The day was a huge success and I have had numerous praise from all our residents especially our Chinese nationals at what a great time they had. The display was great fun and made the day complete. Thank you once again for agreeing to come at such short notice and providing such great performers.
