A Chinese Summer Night’s Entertainment

From the archives of my time in China, one for the “Odd Saturdays“… some collective dancing – or does that qualify as soft aerobics?

The better question, though, may be why we in the West see such pastimes as collectivist and somehow whack, while going to the disco and dancing in individualistic confusion.
And, what’s better, pastimes to engage in together and meet (or at least, be with) other people without much need to do anything but join in, or single living that only offers community if you actively go out, make friends, and organize it all?

You’re also just welcome to enjoy the short look into the rather rural, university-campus, China, though…

There’s one more dancing vid to come, actually…

    I would love to see this kind of socialization and exercise taking root on a large scale…It reminds me of the song “dancing in the street”…I love it. So healthy and peaceful.
