FED Lion Dance goes to Malaysia!
Organized by: Albert Le
For years, the Far East Dragon Lion Dance Association has been an advocate for youth and gender empowerment. We incorporated our female members into every aspect of the dance when it was the cultural norm to discourage their participation. At first, people raised their eyebrows to the spectacle of seeing female lion dancers, but it didn't take too long for them to raise their eyebrows to the spectacle of seeing our skilled lion dancers who happen to be female alongside our male lion dancers.
This past year, our senior lion dancers, Eva and Alan, won 2nd place and the Audience Choice Award at the 2nd Annual KTSF Lion Dance Competition, and were later recognized for their talent with an exclusive invitation to receive special training in Malaysia.
This summer, we embark on a journey to Malaysia to receive that training and further our mission to empower female lion dancers, but we need your help covering some of the travel costs!
Anything is appreciated and would go a long way in making our journey happen.
