DANCE Class: Karen Traditional Bamboo

The Exchange House presents D.A.N.C.E. (Demonstrating a New Cultural Exchange), a class which will feature a different type of dance monthly from the many culture bearers and dance makers in Akron.

FIRST CLASS: KAREN TRADITIONAL BAMBOO

Karen traditional bamboo dance is performed at the Karen New Year and other special occasions. There are two types of Karen bamboo dance, the first one is group holding bamboo sticks low to the ground and cross over each other in a checkered pattern, while the rest of the dancers step in between the spaces made by the crossed bamboo sticks. The second one is a half of the group standing and holding bamboo, dancers dance quick steps among the striking bamboos. One wrong move and your foot will be hit by the bamboo poles. It is very important for the dancers paying attention to their feet between the bamboo. This particular bamboo dance is very popular in Thailand and Burma (Myanmar).
