Ray Petersen

Vice Chair of Lion Dance Department

Director Ray Petersen grew up in Lincoln and was actively involved in the Asian community. He had a passion for martial arts, but it was through his Chinese teacher, Celine Robertson of Lincoln High School, that he fell in love with the language and culture.
He and his wife Danielle started JMTAA with the goal of preserving kung fu and lion dance traditions and sharing it with those who may not be familiar with either.
