Tang music and dance inherit the songs and dances of the preceding dynasties but also assimilate the new nd exotic cultures that came to Silk Road. Xi'an was the crossroad where travelers, merchants and indigenous minority tribes converged to trade within the authentic Tang cultural predominance of this great ancient civilization.
Traditional Chinese folk dances originated from sacrificial ritual, where rhythmic movements and prayers combined to appease god and exhibit with the development of the Chinese culture. It was during the flourishing Tang Dynasty, however, that these dances thoroughly became a graceful art form. These new and graceful movements blend with the magnificent tune of authentic Tang musical instruments such as bells, drums and zithers that create a cultural experience that is both extravagant and entertaining. Years of painstaking practice allow our modern artists to reproduce our impression of the splendor and the glory of this great civilization.
