Chinese New Year 2013 – Year of the Snake

10th February 2013 – 24th February 2013

Finishing off a busy Year of the Dragon, the Year of the Snake was no different as the troupe was fully booked out for the whole Chinese New Year period.

The troupe performed all over Perth at various places which included restaurants, retail shops, houses, banks, churches, schools, and Chinese New Year events. With the loud firecrackers, loud beats of the instruments, and the colourful lions, the performances attracted large crowds. The troupe received great feedback from the audience as well gaining the audiences interest in the art of lion dance.

A short Chinese New Year clip was filmed on the group at their performance at Epoch Times. This could be found at the following link

The troupe did close to over 100 performances during the Chinese New Year period. The first performance for Chinese New Year was at the Hsu’s residence, with the final performance of the Chinese New Year period being at the University restaurant located in Broadway. With the standard of the troupe’s performance, not only did the troupe receive a lot of positive feedback, but also advance bookings for the New Year as well as new sponsorships. This truly shows that the hard efforts and contributions of the troupe are highly appreciated and liked by the public.

The troupe would like to thank everyone who came to watch our performances, who cheered and applauded the troupe, fed the lions red packets, and ultimately appreciating everything we do in our performances. And finally a big thank you to the members of the CCC Lion Dance Troupe, as it is your hard work, dedication and contributions that allows the troupe to do this fun, physical and cultural art called lion dance at such a high level.

From the family of the CCC Lion Dance Troupe, we all wish you a Happy Chinese New Year – Year of the Snake, Gung Hey Fut Choi!
