- What is included in the lion dance performance?
The most requested type of performance is for wedding receptions. A wedding performance typically lasts approximately 15 minutes, includes two to three lions, and the music ensemble (drum, gong, and cymbals). Performances can be customized for each event as we have several types of options to choose from.

When planning your reception, the choice of entertainment will make or break your special event. Here are some post-wedding statistics you may find interesting:
* After The Vows:
72% of all brides say they would have spent more time choosing their reception entertainment.
99% of brides say they would have spent more of their budget on entertainment.
During wedding planning, brides say their highest priority is their attire, followed by the reception site and caterer. Reception entertainment is among the least of their priorities. Within one week after their reception, 78% of brides say they would have made the entertainment their highest priority!
When asked, 81% of guests say the thing they remember most about a wedding is the entertainment.
Entertainment is 5% of your wedding budget, but more than TWICE as many guests will remember the entertainment more than anything else.
* These statistics were published in the St. Louis Bride & Groom Magazine (2003).

- Is entertainment really that important?
"That's the one thing I hear from my friends after a wedding. They wished they had more entertainment. Everything else is not as important. The cake, the dress, the decorations, the party favors, no one will remember. But they will remember the entertainment and they will remember whether or not the food was good. No one wants people to remember your wedding as being boring. That's the worst."
