Tang Dynasty Dance


Tang Dynasty Dance - China

This is called the Tang Dynasty Dance in Xian. The dance is said to have originated in China's Tang Dynasty over 1,000 years ago. China has one of the most ancient histories and cultures in the world.

There are many different regions in China and there were many different dynasties. The first dynasties dated back before 2070 BC! There have been many different dynasties since then, and each one has had its effect on the people, traditions and celebrations.

The Tang Dynastic ruled China from 628 AD - 907 AD. Notice the long flowing sleeves on the costumes. It was meant to make the arms look longer and more graceful. We couldn't imagine eating spaghetti with those sleeves though!
