Lion Dance Singapore – We know your PAIN

Are you here because the lion dance for last CNY was horribly late? Or did they only tell you about the hidden costs upon arriving? Or did they promise 2 lions but only delivered 1 due to manpower constrain?

We know. We’re glad you stopped by.

We know the kind of feeling when your boss begins waiting for the lion dance troupe. Or the kind of stare the office gives because the whole office is waiting for the lion dance troupe so everyone can Lo Hei. And the lion dance troupe you engaged is not picking up your call.

We didn’t grow so fast in the last 10 years by accident. We did it by keeping our promise, every time.

According to our survey on newly acquired customers, most cited “late” as the reason they seek a new lion dance troupe to engage. While most cited “late”, a handful experienced “no-show” of lion dance troupes after booking performances with their company. 

At Lion Dance Singapore, our primary core value is Professionalism. We are habitually punctual and there is no excuse for being late.

What is Lion Dance?

The lion dance is a traditional Chinese dance performed by martial arts schools(or lion dance troupes) on big occasions, such as the Chinese New Year or Mid-Autumn Festival for good luck, as it is believed that the lion is an auspicious animal.

Lion dances are performed by two “dancers” in a lion costume. The performers become the body of the lion: the one in front is the head and front limbs, the one behind is the back and hind legs. Performers’ legs are dressed the same color as the lion’s body, and sometimes the costume extends to shoes the shape and color of the lion’s paws.
