Traditional Dances


Types of Dances
Excavated antiques include small bronze figures of a flute player, a drummer, a cymbal clapper, a dancer and a fifth figure that looks like a dwarf clown carrying a sack on its back. The heads of the figures are large but the bodies are of fine proportion. They are well dressed and bedecked with ornaments, and their postures are animated indicating they were engaged in performance.

Nationals Races' Dances
Modern adaptations of the Doan dance have been created wherein the theme of the songs are as meaningful and as important as the dance movements. The songs sung on particular occasions are full of "meeting-and-parting" themes, reminding the people to maintain the friendly spirit among themselves until they we meet again in the coming year.
