Our centre has had a lion dance team for years. The dancers and musicians are drawn from our volunteer pool, and they train and typically perform alongside the Vancouver Police Department’s own lion dance team.
Due to some quirks with the Chinatown parade planning, the teams were unable to march with the main VPD/CPC contingent, but yes, they were definitely there, dancing up a storm.
Or, “cymbaling” up a storm…you get the idea.
Any CCPC volunteers interested in joining the lion dance team can contact our Neighbourhood Policing Officer, Cst. Wes Fung.
And Cst. Fung promises fun will be had by all!
