End the night with a spectacular lion dance performance to help ring in the New Year. The Rising Phoenix Lion Dance Association of Texas will perform a traditional orange eating and blessing, symbolizing good fortune and prosperity.
Established in 2003 in San Jose, California, the Rising Phoenix Lion Dance Association (RPLD) is focused on preserving the Asian cultural arts of lion dancing. After 11 years, the association was given the opportunity to expand and in 2014, RPLD was established in Dallas, Texas. The members of RPLD are leaders in the Asian American community, spreading culture, tradition, and entertainment to those around them.
The After Hours Showcase is part of Late Nights at the Dallas Museum of Art.
