UM Dragon and Lion Dance Team

separator line

The Dragon Dance Team of the University of Macau was established in March 2019, aiming at inheriting and promoting the Chinese traditional culture. It gives great opportunities for students to contribute their strength, develop their potential and maintain physical fitness. We currently have students coming from Macau, Hong Kong, Mainland China and overseas. The Dragon Dance Team members are comprehensive, adaptable and convivial in creating a diverse and harmonious team atmosphere. In August 2022, the UM Dragon Dance Team added Lion Dance as a regular training scheme and officially changed its name to the UM Dragon and Lion Dance Team.

The Dragon and Lion Dance Team is managed by the Office of Sports Affairs (OSA), which follows the same rights and obligations as a university team. OSA provides free training and exchanging opportunities to the team members; accordingly, team members actively perform at all kinds of celebrations and events.  Thus far, the team has participated in numerous internal and external performances, such as UM Open Day, sports events’ opening ceremonies, celebration banquets, and so on and so forth.
