I was first introduced to lion dancing at the young age of 9. As I grew older I became more and more interested with the hobby. However, as time went on, it became more of a passion for me than a hobby. Lion dance is my get away, I don’t have to worry about anything besides improving and harnessing my skills as a dancer. My team has gone so far in the last decade, we went from not know anything about lion dancing to attending seminars with lion dance masters. Some people like to think of us as a team but I think of them as family. Not only do we share a passion for this art, we share a bond and strong relationship with each other. I would not be who I am today if it weren’t for the older members, that kept me in check and mentored me throughout my life. I hope to pass my knowledge and passion onto the future generation. Without a doubt in my mind, I know that Lion dancing with stick with for as long as I live.
