Square dancing rocks primary school

Square dancing is popular in China, but most people associate it with elderly people as the motions are easy and slow and it originated as a fitness movement for the elderly.

However, a primary school in Xiangyang, Hubei province has added square dancing to their curriculum for over three years. The students practice square dancing during class break instead of other exercises.

The whole school also has a class every Wednesday afternoon to learn new square dancing moves.

Now, many students can ace square dancing after learning more than 100 different square dancing choreographies over three years.
