Thirteen dynasties that maintained their capital in
Xi'an (also known as Chang An), but the Tang Dynasty
(618-709 AD) period are distinguished as the most progressive
and prosperous era in the history of China. Tang Dynasty
music and dance symbolize the splendor and the glory
of the Chinese civilization and is world famous.
Tang music and dance inherit the songs and dances of
the preceding dynasties but also assimilate the new
and exotic cultures that came to Silk Road. Xi'an was
the crossroad where travelers, merchants and indigenous
minority tribes converged to trade within the authentic
Tang cultural predominance of this great ancient civilization.
Traditional Chinese folk dances originated from sacrificial
ritual, where rhythmic movements and prayers combined
to appease god and exhibit with the development of the
Chinese culture. It was during the flourishing Tang
Dynasty, however, that these dances thoroughly became
a graceful art form. These new and graceful movements
blend with the magnificent tune of authentic Tang musical
instruments such as bells, drums and zithers that create
a cultural experience that is both extravagant and entertaining.
Years of painstaking practice allow our modern artists
to reproduce our impression of the splendor and the
glory of this great civilization.
