Who we are
Prosperous Mountain Lion Dance (PMLD) was formed by youths in 2007 to become Canberra's first locally-based lion dance troupe.
We are a small, but growing non-profit community organisation who welcome people of all ages and nationalities to participate in this fun, physical, and traditional art form.
What we do
Our main focus is lion dance, however, we have since added dragon dancing and unicorn dancing to our array of performances.
A variety of other roles including mascots, percussionists, and casual volunteers are also available.
We train throughout the year and perform for both public and private events such as festivals, ceremonies, weddings, and birthdays. We also conduct workshops for schools and holiday programs.
The Lunar New Year (Chinese New Year) is our busiest period and you can catch us performing all over Canberra!
Why we do it
Our team is fully comprised of volunteers who want to give back to the community.
Our training sessions foster a safe and respectful environment which allows our members to engage in different cultures, learn new skills, develop confidence, form friendships, and gain unique experiences in a fun team environment.
