Chinese Lion Dance Training

Since 1961, our lion dance teams have appeared in the Toronto Lion Dance Festival, on Canadian broadcasting networks such as CBC, CTV, and CITYTV, and those from the People's Republic of China such as China Central TV.

The lion dance is a long-standing Chinese tradition. Even today, the lion dance endures as an ever-celebrated facet of Chinese culture.

At the Toronto Hong Luck Kung Fu Club, we continue to advance this tradition by sharing it with those who are interested in its beauty and athleticism.

Members are invited to begin learning the Lion Dance after they complete the basic requirements of the beginner kung fu class at Hong Luck. This gives them the coordination and body strength needed to begin training in the Lion Dance.

Class Time:
Saturdays: 1:00 to 3:00pm

The lion represents the "spirit" of a martial arts school. Traditionally, the lion was used to frighten demons from local businesses and communities, and help bring good fortune to all. Today, the tradition endures by commemorating a host of festivals and opening ceremonies in Toronto and elsewhere.

The colours of lions vary, and they may follow those attributed to the Chinese god Kwan Kung and his brothers Chang and Liu.

In terms of athleticism, lion dance routines are dynamic and acrobatic. The physical and mental demands of high-level routines are so great that there are now lion dance competitions held annually throughout the world!
