London Based Chinese Lion Dancers
The Chinese Lion Dance is a form of traditional dance in Chinese culture and is often used to celebrate weddings and events during the Chinese New Year festive period. The performances last approximately 2×7 minutes or 1X15 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 live music consisting of Chinese Drums, Gongs, and Cymbals.
For a better and more vibrant display, more lions can be used. Double Chinese Lions create an interactive, grand and fun performance for your guests.
What does the Lion Do?
- The Lion can Mix, Mingle and Move in a room among your guests.
- Guests always enjoy and taking photos with the Lion, especially group photos during a Chinese themed party.
- The Lion Can Also Bless Ang Pow Packets, Cabbages and Oranges.
The Chinese 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 lion dancers, while a dragon needs seven dragon dancers. In a Lion Dance, the performers’ faces cannot be seen by the audience because the dancers are inside the lion costume. In a dragon dance, The audience will see the dancers controlling the dragon costume as the dragon is on poles.
In a Wedding, the Lion is often used to lead the guests or the wedding couple as part of a procession into the wedding hall or ballroom.
The Lion can be made to perform with live music, normally Chinese drums, gongs and cymbals or with recorded music. There is an additional cost involved with using Chinese Lion Dance Musicians 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.
The guys were great last night please say thank you to them. I will send over some of the images once I receive them.
