3rd USDLDF National Lion Dance Championships

Sponsorship Invitation

Dear friend,

Established in 2017, the United States Dragon & Lion Dance Federation (USDLDF) is a 501(c)3non-profit organization that aims to preserve and promote the arts of dragon and lion dance as a cultural tradition and sport throughout the United States.

We hope that you will consider sponsorship of the USDLDF’s 3rd National Championships in
June 2023 held at the Austin Convention Center. This two-day event will bring teams from
around the nation to engage in friendly competition to showcase the spectacle and pageantry that is lion dance. In addition, for the first time, the USDLDF will be including separate divisions for youth and female lion dancers! This family friendly event will be sure to entertain and amaze both people who are new and familiar with lion dance. The competition will draw hundreds of attendees and VIPs from not only Texas, but from across the nation along with prominent media coverage that will provide a great showcase for your organization and brand.

Lion Dance dates back thousands of years and is said to bring good fortune and luck to those who see it. As such, it has become a mainstay for many different festivals and cultural events. Lion Dance internationally continues to grow and develop as a sport that is enjoyed by people of all backgrounds. Lion dance videos are extremely popular and are viewed by millions from around the globe.

Sifu Taran Champagne, head instructor for the Texas Dragon/Lion Dance Team, serves not
only locally in the Austin area, but as the treasurer for the USDLDF. In addition to these
positions, he has established the Reilly Dragon/Lion Dance Association out of Reilly Elementary School in the Austin Independent School District to help foster a love of both dragon and lion dance with the next generation. He has been given the great honor of organizing the 3rd USDLDF National Championship. By hosting this event, Taran hopes to not only bring a unique experience to Austin, Texas, but to inspire the next generation of lion dancers to carry on the tradition. It is our intention to make this event free and open to the public, so we can promote the art to as great an audience as possible!


We are excited to showcase Austin, Texas and all that it has to offer. You and other generous
sponsors are the key to making this exciting event a success! We hope that by hosting this
event in Austin, we will set the path for future Dragon and Lion Dance events in our local and national community.
