Jongs & High Poles
White Lotus is proud to be the first team to perform on jongs (high poles) in Portland and all of the Pacific Northwest. Dancing on jongs takes much stamina, coordination, bravery, and practice. This is considered the pinnacle of lion dance difficulty. Every year, world lion dance federations hold international lion dance competitions all on Jongs; something White Lotus is working hard to achieve within the near future.
Our group work year-round to work up to the ability to perform these amazing acrobatic stunts on tables, jongs, monopoles and benches. When watching one of our performances, make sure to notice the attention to detail we put into mimicking natural animalistic tendencies.
Our acrobatic stunts offerings:
1-2 lion dance performance on jongs that go up to 8ft.
1-2 lion dance performance on 20ft monopoles.
2 lion dance performance on tables that go up to 6ft.
1-2 lion dance performance on benches.
