Analysis of the Importance of Demeanor Training to the Study of Chinese Folk Dance—Taking Uighur Dance as an Example

Ziqiao Wang


Chinese folk dance has a long history and is quite abundant. It is an indispensable source of Chinese classical dance, court dance and professional dance creation. Chinese folk dances are characterized by unpretentiousness, diverse forms, rich content, and vivid images. But these require professional dancers to express through professional training. Even amateur dances need to be completed through well-trained and emotionally full actors.[1] In the process of training, in addition to the necessary basic skills and other physical training, we also need to train the demeanor. We often say that the eyes are the windows of the soul, and the folk dance is more about expressing a feeling to the audience. If the dancer don’t have a good performance and face expression, he or she can’t express the dance work at all. Therefore, this article takes the training of national folk dance as the starting point, combining technical training, stage performance, professional dancers and amateur dancers, taking the Uygur as an example.
