About Us

The NYP Lion & Dragon Dance Troupe aims to expose students to the Chinese culture of lion dance and pass on this traditional activity to the next generation. Members learn how to master the steps required to be lion, dragon and kirin "dancers" as well as the art of performing with a festive drum. 

Since the troupe’s inception, it has grown in numbers, under the steadfast guidance of the instructor and the supportive staff of NYP. As a result, it has made good progress and won medals. For example, the NYP Lion and Dragon Dance Troupe clinched the championship trophy at the 2010, 2011 and 2015 NTU Institutional Inter-School Competition. The NYP Lion and Dragon Dance Troupe has also achieved a Gold Award (Women’s Category) and a Bronze Award (Men’s Category) in the 2015 Speed Dragon competition organised by the Singapore Wushu Federation.
