The Chinese Handkerchief Dance is the variation of the traditional Chinese dance called "Yangge" or "Yang Ge" (秧歌). The dance was developed during Song Dynasty and said very popular in many rural areas. It can be performed as many as 10 dancers and comes into many styles depending on the culture of each region.
