The CMS Lion Dance Team comprises of volunteers from all walks of life. Our members range from primary school students and office workers to multi generational families.
Each dedicated member takes time out of their lives to partake in and share the art of Lion Dancing. It is an integral part of the Melbourne Chinese community history, and we are all passionate about keeping the tradition alive.
