Chinese New Year 2012 – Year of the Dragon

23rd January 2012 – 6th February 2012

The Chinese Community Centre (CCC) Lion Dance Troupe had a yet another successful Chinese New Year, this year being busier than the previous year. For the 15 days of the Chinese New Year period the troupe performed every day, starting in the day and finishing at night. The Troupe actually started performing on the 21st of January, a day before the Chinese New Year celebration, for the China Associations Chinese New Year function. Held at Dragon Palace restaurant.

The troupe had a lot of new customers this year, which were a combination of customers who watched us perform last Chinese New Year, and customers who were audiences in the crowd during this years Chinese New Year performances. The troupe performed all over Perth for offices, churches, Universities, shopping centres, banks, Chinese New Year events,birthdays, restaurants, and house celebrations. Our first performance started in the Vines for a Chinese New Year house celebration for the members of the Singapore Air force. To wrap up the 2012 Chinese New Year celebrations, the troupe performed at Minic Property Group.

The troupe this year had a total of over 80 performances. The troupe received tremendous feedback on their performances that the troupe have gained new sponsors, and are receiving advance bookings for this year. All this feedback reflects back on the groups dedication and efforts put towards the lion dance. The troupe will love to thank all their customers, audiences, and the other lion dance troupes for watching our performances and supporting the troupe. The troupes success will be none without all your love and support. We hope our performances will bring you all great success and fortune for the new year.
