The Cairns Lion Dance team has been performing in Cairns & the surrounding district for more than fifty years. Many local businesses and community groups have given tremendous support over the years. Every Chinese New Year, they perform to a hectic schedule providing a cultural entertainment to those businesses that want to embrace the Chinese New Year. The lion also performs on other auspicous occasions such as grand openings and the celebration of birthdays and weddings.

LION DANCE TRAINING
The CADCAI Lion team trains on Sunday during the school term (long weekends excepted) at Balaclava State School's undercovered Basketball Stadium from 12.00am - 2.00pm. (McCoombe Street entrance). The training is a combination of performance, fitness and team work. This includes basic exercises, lion dance steps and playing of lion dance instruments. This is a great opportunity for kids and adults alike to challenge their fitness levels in a non-competative environment. If you are interested in joining the group or for more information, please contact Chan Kehoe Ph 0409 632820
CADCAI would also like to make special mention of its Lion & Dragon dancing sponsors, the Hayward family. Without their generosity and support, the CADCAI Lion Dancers simply would not be possible.
