On a recent spring day, villagers dressed in traditional attire of the She ethnic group, danced briskly in a square surrounded by sprawling fields of blooming rapeseed flowers in Dongtou township of Huichang county in Ganzhou city, Jiangxi province.

Two performers created rhythmic patterns by tapping bamboo poles on the ground, while others tried to jump, hop, or step between the poles, attempting to avoid stepping on them, while leaping and bouncing in time with the music.

This created a joyous vibe, drawing in tourists who couldn't resist joining in on the fun and participating in the dance.

Apart from the bamboo dancing, local villagers also showcased the traditional She ethnic group folk art of baizilong (meaning arranging dragons into word patterns), which involves a group of performers who manipulate a long dragon puppet to forming various Chinese characters that represent good luck and fortune.
