This is part of the grand finale, end of parade from Chinese New Year in New York, just yesterday. My family’s troupe has been doing this for over 40 years. My nephew started this as an 9 year old kid in Chinatown, who wanted to start his own Lion troupe and 40 years later it’s grown into a huge troupe of some 250 “off the street” kids, doing good things and keeping the kids out of trouble. This was shot, slow shutter speed and flash on camera to get that effect. The troupe CAN be hired for private functions and they make a great entrance to your special party. They’re the Chinatown Community Young Lions.
