About Us

The NYP Lion & Dragon Dance Troupe lets students explore and understand the Chinese culture through Lion Dance. The troupe aims to introduce this traditional activity to newer generations. Members learn 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 supportive NYP Staff. The club memebrs are close knit, and have made  good progress in training and competitions.
