Yang Ge – Chinese Dance

Yānggē (秧歌) means “rice sprout song,” and the dance originates in Northern China, expressing happiness. I found the dance on YouTube and adapted the steps for 3rd graders. (Download available below.)

The Chinese fans often have very fluffy feathers, so the students attached scarves to the fans they made in art class.

  1. Hi Beth, Are one of these the link to the actual music that you used to perform this dance with? I would love to try this dance out, but would like to know what song it fits with. (I am one of your page members) Thanks! Mandy
