Jiu Long is the next generation of lion dance. We are a non-profit organization of like-minded individuals with one purpose. As a team we strive to further the art by combining ancient traditions with a modern flair to create a truly unique style.
We cater to any events, including but not limited to weddings, grand openings, birthdays, parties, concerts, celebrations, and Chinese New Year.
I hired Jiu Long Lion Dance Troupe for my wedding and we were totally blown away! The performance was incredible and all of my guests raved about it. This was a first exposure to lion dancing for many of my guests and it was fantastic! We couldn't have been happier!
Throughout the planning process they were so great to work with! I had the added complication of planning it long distance and Jonathan and Kenneth were very accommodating. They communicated with me regularly and when I was able to be in town they took the time to meet us at the venue and go over logistics.
The whole group was very professional and it made our big day a spectacular event!
I have seen many different lion Dance teams in action and I can honestly say that Jiu Long has the most heart and talent that I have ever seen. Jiu Long is a family that loves what they do and are super good at doing it. They have more than six years of experience and have the most affordable prices in town for the talent. Book today.
What to Expect
From years of previous performances, both the audience member and clients are amazed and jubilant about lion dance. Perhaps they haven't seen the performance before. Even if they have, the lions are able to perform at a level for the audience to feel joy and excitement. The atmosphere is refreshed, definitely bringing an authentic feel. The lions are usually loved, especially by kids. They all want to touch the lions, including the adults. Touching the lion(s) and interacting with them is said to bring good luck and fortune. The lions dance can do high flying jumps; their character is happy, excitable and resembles playfulness.
We are a temple based group made up completely by volunteers with over 100+ years of lion dance experience between us. This guarantees that everyone performing for you will want to be there and loves to perform.
In addition, we reinvest the money made into maintaining equipment, providing food and transportation for our troupe, and additional gear for the next New Year season. The rest of the money (~50% - 60%) is donated to various temples in need around the city.
As a lion dancing group, we perform for numerous occasions and are not limited to any in particular. We tailor our performance according to what the event is and how it wants to be done. Special requests are accepted. For example, some events needs us to dismount off of stages, some want extravagant bench routines, some want simple traditional lion dance, confetti cannons, barrel rolls, fire, etc.
You'd just have to see the lion and communicate with us, we can accommodate! We are a group that focus on quality; everything we do is of the best quality one can expect.
