CYLLADDA logo

Founded in 1976 and based in Sydney, the Chinese Youth League Lion and Dragon Dance Australia (CYLLADDA) practises both Southern (Traditional and Freestyle) Lion Dance & Dragon Dance and have been performing in New South Wales for nearly 40 years. Our objective is to educate the Australian public about lion and dragon dance through performance and interaction. Our lion dance team recently won first place in the 2018 MGM International Lion Dance Competition, Females Traditional division, in Macau, the first Western lion dance team ever to win an international Lion Dance Championship.

What We Do

CYLLADDA performs year-round at a variety of events and occasions, ranging from sporting events, celebrations, to major festivals in and out of Sydney. See Below.

Lion Dancing

Lion Dancing embraces the beauty, art, culture, traditions, and history of China. Gestures and movements that closely mimic the emotion of the mystical animal tell the story behind the performance.

Dragon Dancing

Like the lion dance it is most often seen in festive celebrations. The dance team mimics the flowing movements of this river spirit.
