China Drafting Line To Bind Square Dance
Kang, Donghoon
Few of social activities do not under government supervision and norms, and soon that will include square dancing.
Ever-growing numbers of enthusiastic dancers usually called “Dama”, meaning elderly women.
They have always gathered on the street corners of China’s cities, therefore lead to dissatisfaction that the elderly participants blast their music until late night, disturbing the peace and quiet of local residents.
Last year photos of a group of middle-aged Chinese women performing a square dance routine outside the Louvre in Paris set off a debate over whether the pastime had gone too far.
In China, these women often gather around dinnertime, performing choreographed moves to sometimes thumping dance music piped through a portable boom-box.
But if the General Administration of Sport and the Ministry of Culture have their way the nightly routine will be strictly regulated.
“Square dancing represents the collective aspect of Chinese culture but now it seems that the overenthusiasm of participants has dealt it a harmful blow with disputes over noise and venues,” fitness official Liu Guoyong, chief of the sport administration, reported by China Daily.
“So we have to guide it with national standards and regulations.” Chinese governor.
“The unified drills will help keep the dancing on the right track where they can be performed in a socia lly responsible way.” they added.
