LTL Group Australia

Lion dancing is a popular way to entice good luck to visit house warmings, weddings, birthdays….and festivals!

Two skilled, agile performers; one operating the head, and one operating the tail, mimic the movements of a magnificent, brightly coloured lion, shaking its mighty head to show its huge teeth and flashing eyes, demonstrating the lion’s strength and power as well as its playful side.

The lion dance is accompanied by a team of talented musicians playing traditional instruments such as drums, cymbals and gongs to create a captivating atmosphere of light and sound as the lion performs.

MacGregor State School Chamber Choir & Voices

Chamber Choir and MacGregor Voices perform a selection of repertoire learnt throughout the year, including works from musical theatre, popular music and choral works.
