Yingge dance: A celebration of heroes


In the Chaoshan region of south China's Guangdong Province, an age-old form of warrior folk dancing is being revitalized. It is Yingge, an art form that merges opera, dance and martial arts. He Murong and Hong Rongzeng have been practicing Yingge, which originated in their home region during the Ming Dynasty, since they were children. As troupe leaders today, they incorporate the Southern Fist style of kung fu into their work to captivate audiences with innovative performances. Local animation director Zhu Xiaopeng, meanwhile, is using his modern media format to present Yingge in a fresh new way that enchants younger audiences. Witness the power and beauty of this fascinating performing art with CGTN!
