Picture one and two:   Dance: Evening in the Ancient Palace  Chengdu is a city steeped in history—every cobbled street, every crowded alleyway, is witness to the city’s more than three thousand years of history.

Based on murals found from ancient tombs around the city, the dancers represent an authentic part of Chengdu’s past.

Picture Three and Four: Dance: Pretty Huadan Huada are the pretty, lovely naughty girl in Sichuan Opera. The dance, with Sichuan features, combines Chinese dance skills with the art of Sichuan Opera. It frees classical choreograph to make dance itself different from the others. Its strongly accented sound of Gongs and drums, beautiful historical drama costume, clear and lively melody, as well as the dances’ beautiful postures and movements replicate the charm of songs and dances of Chengdu style and character of the lively pretty Sichuan girls. 

Picture Five: Acrobatics: Roller Skating On November, 2006, the program won the first Prize of Bashu Literature and Art at Sichuan Acrobatic Contest. Two girls in roller skates give breathtaking and stimulating Performance. There are many difficult movements, such as lifting up , whirling, flying-swallow, shutting back and forth among vases, rolling in the air, etc. It shows the girls’ beauty of graceful figures. 

Picture six: Finger shadow show: In the Moment This is amazing! The finger master is one of the best in China. She uses her two dexterous hands to make hundreds of life-like and stunning shadow puppets. 

Picture Seven: Sichuan Opera: Fire-eat and Face Change A must see during any visit to Sichuan—luckily, though, we’ve brought it to you! This opera performer is specially trained in the age-old craft of fire eating and face changing. He can change elaborate designs in the masks he wears in split seconds, between turns and miniscule movements.  

Picture Eight: Dance: Tradition Chinese Fan Dance The fan is an integral part of Chinese tradition. Used in all levels of society, the fan has found a permanent place in Chinese dance. These performers are particularly versatile in their mastery of Chinese fan dancing.  

Picture Nine Dance: Love song from Kanding. Kanding is a county in Sichuan province with a very large population of Tibetans. This song and dance presents their significant culture. It describes both love and life on the sweeping Tibetan plateau. It is an ode to sunny days, mountain winds, and grazing cattle. It is a song about happiness.
