It is at the same time a key city for the high tech industry, auto industry and business circulation industry in China.
The music of the different dances is diverse but remains mostly traditional. The sounds are subtle and harmonic and traditional Chinese instruments are common. Some are the pipa (somewhat similar to a guitar) and the erhu (also known as Chinese violin). Gongs and bamboo flutes are also used frequently.
Dance is an important part of the Chinese culture and has many different purposes. Some are performed during festivals and rituals, like welcoming the New Year or celebrating the harvest. Dances can also be a form of expression and many have developed among the different regions like the popular Lantern dance, which originated in southern China and involves undulating body movements that emulate a dragon.
Dance performances have been a traditional form of entertainment. Historically, the royal court enjoyed watching them, and in modern times opera and ballet inspired traditional dances are a popular form of entertainment.
