Our participation:

The Early Steps:

In 2016, Hong Tech Lyon made its debut at the Genting World Lion Dance Championship, filled with excitement and determination. The competition was fierce, as lion dance troupes from around the globe showcased their skills and creativity. Although Hong Tech Lyon did not receive any awards that year, the participation allowed us to gain invaluable experience and exposed them to diverse lion dance styles and techniques.

Building on Experience:

Hong Tech Lyon returned to the championship in 2018, armed with newfound knowledge and a burning desire to shine. We meticulously fine-tuned their routines, paying attention to every detail, from synchronization to presentation. Our performance captivated the audience, but the judges' decision did not favor us in terms of awards. Nevertheless, the experience further solidified our commitment to improvement and motivated us to strive for excellence.

The upcoming determination:

This year, Hong Tech Lyon eagerly prepares to showcase talents once again at the upcoming Genting World Lion Dance Championship. Armed with valuable experience from our previous attempts, the team has dedicated countless hours to training and perfecting their routines. As the competition draws near, Hong Tech Lyon eagerly awaits our turn on the grand stage of the Genting World Lion Dance Championship. We approach the event with excitement and a deep appreciation for the opportunity to showcase our passion for lion dance.

Looking forward to our participation this summer!
