Lion Dance is a traditional performance that dates back over 1,000 years. It is a Chinese-Vietnamese custom that is believed to bring good luck, prosperity and peace into the Lunar New Year, business openings, weddings, birthdays and other celebratory events.
The Worcester Youth Nian Dancers, or WYND for short, was created in 2009 as a way to channel our youths abundant energy into something that is cultural, healthy and positive. Starting from Youtube videos and strong willpower, the team has grown to be one of the most recognized lion dance teams in the Greater Worcester and Boston areas.
As part of a 501c3 nonprofit organization,
WE DO NOT CHARGE FOR EACH PERFORMANCE.
We do, however, accept donations that will go towards equipment maintenance, food and transportation costs.
