Per Class: £10.00 (members only) - General level, traditional lion dance classes open to members.
Class sizes will be kept to 12 students' maximum, this means that the class is big enough to cover the cost of the hall and more importantly allows for adequate space for students to be taught safely and practice freely.
Students will learn the basic movements of the lion head and body including at the more intermediate and advanced stages the acrobatic tricks as well as the musical accompaniment of the drums, cymbals and gong to ensure that all students are well versed in the entire lion dance.
