Ansai waist drum is a unique dance in northern Shanxi routine marked by its rustic simplicity. Dancer with a red drum tied to his waist holds a drumstick with red silk, beating the drum while dancing. The rhythmical drum sound and graceful dance show the straightforward and uninhibited character of villagers in northern Shanxi Province(My hometown).life was hard defiantly in the old days.But this unique dance shows that they are determined to conquer hardship. So do you have any unique in your hometown?

we have many dances here in the philippines we have the tinikling,ati atihan dance,maglalatik and so many other native dances that were danced by our ancestors. Tinikling is our natinal dance and it came from the bird "tikling" it uses bamboo while dancing it imitates the movement of the bird.
