Thousands of years old! The
lion dance is an important tradition in China and abroad. Usually the
dance is part of festivities like Chinese New Year, the openings of
restaurants and weddings. If well-performed, the lion dance is believed
to bring luck, good fortune and happiness. Lion Dance is considered
a mandatory part of classical or traditional Kung Fu. Those who practice
Kung Fu are usually very good at the dance because the lion dance utilizes
the footwork, body movements, balance, and agility that is required
in true Kung Fu.
Dedicated to bringing the unique culture of China to the World!
As a 'Northern Kung Fu School', we specialize in the Northern Lions. However, we have the strength and leg speed that is necessary for 'bold' lion
dances. Due to this fact, our "Southern Lion Dances" are
powerful, acrobatic and extremely pleasurable to watch. Since the system
tends to do a great deal of reaching with normal techniques, we tend to be more capable to reach-out further with the lions. We are also the
only Troupe, in the area, capable of performing the fantastic "Dragon
Dance" properly. We have the largest assortment of Lions in the
Midwest. We have more teams than anyone else in the Midwest
capable of using them. It is without question that the "Shaolin
Lohan Pai Lion Dance Troupe" is the most diverse, exciting
and professional "Lion Dance Troupe" in the Midwest and has been recognized and rated as one
of the "TOP 10 Dragon & Lion Dance Teams in the U.S.A."!
