Tibetan Guozhuang Dance

Tibetan Guozhuang Dance

Course length available: 45m, 2h
Guozhuang is an especially unique ceremonial dance that is endemic to the region. It features dancing in a circle with singing and is unaccompanied by instruments. The dance was initially developed to be performed around a campfire in either a house or tent, and later became a staple of Tibet’s unique culture. The lyrics of the melodies the dancers will sing borrow inspiration from the local environment and reflect the animistic qualities of the region’s tradition.
