A unique team building experience, Dragon Squad combines creative expression with project management and allows members to put on a dazzling show. In Chinese history, few things have equaled the simple elegance of the dragon dance. Villagers would come together in the joys of crafting decorative tributes to the mythical creatures, in the belief that they would grant wisdom, virility, and bountiful harvests. Through cooperative and interpretive movement, up to 50 people would comprise a single dragon. Your team will recreate one of the most culturally recognisable traditions in the world while strengthening core values integral to any successful corporation. Each individual plays a pivotal role in the success of both their team and their fellow participants. Beginning with the construction period, individuals will flex their creative muscles while sharpening their team building and communication skills. The exercise leaves no man or woman behind, requiring good project management as well as promoting solid partnerships. Armed with their instruments, team builders will choreograph a routine with those chosen to perform, creating an energetic and harmonious atmosphere of cooperation. With their vividly-coloured dragons, teams will join together in an age-old celebration as they dance and play music. Points will be awarded to teams for creativity, performance, and team work, with a winning team being announced at the conclusion of the project. It is the perfect exercise to promote leadership, cooperation, and ingenuity within a work force. Companies can even elect to take their creations out into the general public and earn money toward a charity of their choice. And, as a reminder of their combined investment, teams will be invited to take their dragon heads as a keepsake. Dragon Squad is a highly effective team building activity, because it reinforces the bonds that are the foundation of any business.
