A precious heritage and ancient part of Chinese culture is kept alive by performing the traditional Chinese Lion Dance and Dragon Dance. The Chinese lion dance is performed at weddings to bless the couple in order for them to have a long and happy marriage as well as ward off any evil spirits.

“My wife and I had the priviledge of having the Jow Ga Lion Dance Troupe perform at our traditional Chinese wedding banquet last summer August 7th, 2021. The professionalism and audience interaction was fantastic. I still run into some of the over 200 guests in attendance that rave about the whole experience. The communication and coordination leading up to the event was flawless. I would recommend highly for any event that is looking for an authentic element of traditional Chinese culture.
