People performed the Yingge dance, or "Hero's Song," on Tuesday to celebrate the Spring Festival, attracting large crowds to watch in Jiexi county, South China’s Guangdong Province.
As one of the most representative folk arts in Chaozhou and Shantou, Guangdong Province, the Yingge dance combines dancing, nanquan (southern Chinese-style boxing) and opera, with the aim to drive away evil spirits and bring luck and peace. Photos: Li Hao/GT
