2010 International Dragon competition
WCSCC Dragon Dance Troupe’s participation in the World Luminous Dragon Dance Championships – Hong Kong 2010
Audiences in Wellington and throughout the country have been given a greater experience and appreciation of this important part of the Chinese culture, and the level of professionalism brought by the team to performances at events has been be a major contributor to Wellington’s ever growing reputation as the events and cultural capital of NZ.The exceptionally high standard of performances achieved by the group is the direct result of the excellent level of training that has been provided to the team as part of their upskilling for the competition, and their time and commitment in working towards this goal. Four training clinics run by qualified Dragon Dance instructors from Singapore held over an 18 month period not only trained the team itself but has resulted in a number of senior members in the group now capable of maintaining the skill level of the team and conducting training of new members. This is critical to ensure the longevity of the group and to maintain the skills achieved to date.
