Xinjiang is known as a land that overflows with beautiful singing and dancing. Now, after years of development and evolution, Xinjiang dance has made the leap from a folk art into a formal stage art. But despite this progress, what remains unchangeable in the spectacle is the richness of Xinjiang's culture.

Watching a performance of Xinjiang dancing is to get a virtual experience of Xinjiang; the passion of the people, the diversity of its ethnic groups, the richness of its natural resources - and the taste and aroma of its delicious food. Xinjiang dance is famous for its energy and elegance; the steps are buoyant yet skilful; dancers emphasize the movement of every part of the body, particularly the wrists, and there is a great variety of postures.

In the northern part of the region, dance is represented by Sainaimu, a type of dance in Yili area. In this style dancers' movement and postures are bold and exhilarating - but can suddenly change tone, through a slight pause or a delicate humorous action. In the east, the variant is known as Hami Sainaimu. This style has a much slower rhythm with flowing movements and less emphasis on wrist action.

Xinjiang dance is a precious national legacy of Chinese people. Not only will it be passed down from generation to generation, it will also be brought to the international stage.
