Colorful Stick Dance

The Colorful Stick Dance is a particular Kapu Miao ethnic dance in Xiafen in the Wudang district, with gold thread sticks. The dance originated with a group of workers of the People's Liberation Army, coming down from the north, during the Land Reform Campaign of the early 1950s and was performed at a Land Reform celebration. The dance has been handed down across the generations and was previously done at large provincial or municipal art festivals. The dance is also performed outside Guiyang, across Guizhou province, and even abroad. It was also included in the Guizhou volume of The Ethnic Folk Dances of China.
