Living in China, you may have the chance to see a special scene: everyday after supper, there will be some groups of grannies or housewives dancing in the near parks or some empty public places. It is a kind of special dance local in China. That is called Square Dance, Guang3chang3wu3(广场舞). Today, I'm going to tell you what Guang3chang3wu3 is. If you are interested in that, maybe you can find a Chinese tutor to learn.
Dancers of Guang3chang3wu3 are most middle-aged women. They have much spare time without the stress of working or bringing up kids. Also, at middle age, most women have retired from work, so their living circle is just about the family. In such an occasion, they need to find some way for entertaining. Dance is a good way to build elegance and health for people, which is seen by a lot of parents. That is why so many girls choose to learn dance when they are young. For reasons above, some middle-aged women find dancing is a great way for entertainment, and more and more people join the group. Then, Guang3chang3wu3 gets more and more popular. Some may ask: will that hard to learn and will it be free to learn online just like free online language courses? The answer is yes.
Presently, the resources online is so abundant. You can search for videos to learn and imitate if you are interested in the dance. As for the question whether it is hard or not, that is really an unnecessary worry. Middle-aged women with no dancing fundamental skills can dance so well. This fact has already showed that it is quite easy to learn. Apart from that, this dance is just for fun, so everyone can do it well, I believe, even men. So don't think it difficult as doing sat test preparation. Just take it easy.
Practice makes perfect. A best way to learn mandarin is to practice. Learning dance is the same. Even it is easy to learn Square Dance, but it is still necessary to practice. Next time see a group of women dancing after supper in the park, just enjoy it.
