Lion Dance

The three Leung brothers, Kuen, Kwan, and Allen Leung founded Leung’s White Crane Lion and Dragon Dance School in 1971. Immigrating to the United States in the 1960s, they brought with them a rare form of martial art known as white crane, along with a life long devotion to the lion dance.

There are many different kinds of lion dances with distinctive styles and historical roots. Leung’s White Crane presents a Cantonese style similar to the type preserved by Cantonese opera groups in the late 18th century. The group performs regularly at street fairs, New Year’s parades, and family banquets.
