Waist drum dance is a unique, large-scale folk dance with a history of more than 2,000 years in China. Like a hurricane sweeping across the yellow earth, the dance displays the unsophisticated and wild character of peasant life on the Loess Plateau, revealing its unique artistic charm.

The drum dance is a traditional lunar New Year and Lantern Festival activity in Shaanxi province. Young people perform the dance throughout their villages while wishing people a happy New Year.
