Y6 Chinese Bowl Dance 顶碗舞

We had our Y6 did the Bowl Dancing workshop this week. The bowl dance is from Inner Mongolia ethnic minority nation. It is a way of welcome guest. The dancers put a bowl or some bowls on their heads and dance. It is a bit tricky to dance in this way as the dancers’ heads should remain still but shake their shoulders. They can also spin. Wow.

Our children had some time to practise to keep a cup on their heads and walk and spin. Some of them could even shake their shoulders. Well done for trying very hard.
