The waist drum was consisted of main members of dance center. They improved a lot only in one month with the help of instructor and team leader. The members played hard and encouraged their friends to join us, and thus the waist drum team got bigger and bigger. Some people initiatively bought waist drums in order to join in our celebrating event.

Colourful national clothing form Sinkiang, Tibet, Mongolia and Gaoshan nations made team beautiful. Members sometimes were cheering:” We love China!” and sometimes danced with nice music. Even though President played music again and again, we danced happily and no one felt thirsty and tired.

It not only shows wisdom of our community, but also expressed our wish for mother country’s birthday.
