The Triple-A-Lions

The Triple-A-Lions is an "alliance," as stated in the pronunciation of the name, between Southern Young Tiger, Anê Thành, and Gio Nam Lion Dance. It started in May of 2006 when the three groups decided to do a collaboration in the Vietnamese Student Association Culture Night at the University of California, Irvine. The performance consisted of 8 lions each showing their individual abilities to make the lions come to life. Since then, the groups have spawned new friendships and often turn to each other for help, techniques, and knowledge of the dance. Clients may request performances via the alliance. If interested in a lion dance performance incorporating multiple lions, please feel free to contact any of the directors of the respective teams.
