Local eatery-chain Sush celebrated 15 years in business and a new store opening at Wellington Court by convening a celebration in the grounds of Wellington Arcade. The Academy joined in the event with a Blessing Ritual, and a Holy Tantra Vajra Lion Dance performance. Cosplayers and females donning Kimonos also joined locals to celebrate, with the ceremony ending on a high with a flashmob. #liondance
A privilege to be invited to perform the Vajra Lion Dance as part of the annual International Food Fair at Hobart College. It was also a very meaningful affair as many members, and several from the lion dance team, are alumni of the school. A special thank you to Tracy Siedler, the principal of Hobart College, and Shelley Keyes, Chinese teacher at the college, for their invitation to be a part of this multicultural festivity. #HobartCollege #LionDAnce
The Academy was very honoured to be asked by the owners of Hejo to perform a special blessing ceremony, at the site of their restaurant in Hobart. As part of the ceremony, Master Wang performed a blessing ritual, which was followed by the lion dance.
The lion dance is a Chinese tradition performed at festivals and specials occasions, such as Chinese New Year. It symbolises good fortune as it is believed that the lion is an auspicious animal of great power and energy. #CNY #
A privilege to once again be invited to perform at Wrest Point Casino in celebration for Chinese New Year, over a period of 3 days, from 16 - 18 February. Coinciding with the first to third day of Chinese New Year, it is a time for family and friends to gather and celebrate. #Casino #LionDance
The Academy hosted its Chinese New Year banquet at Wrest Point Hobart on 16 February - the first day of the Wu Xu Year (literal interpretation as the Year of the ‘Earth Dog’). People from all walks of life, including politicians, community leaders and volunteers, local and international visitors, as well as new and old friends joined to ring in the new year. While the Year of the Dog is likely to bring challenges, but where there are challenges, there are also opportunities.
