Young students in Nayong county of Guizhou province have easy access to learn about and preserve ethnic cultures.

Guoquanyan Junior High School in Nayong county of Guizhou province introduced lusheng dance to classrooms in 2018 and invited local inheritors teach students.

"The colorful ethnic culture is a treasure of Guizhou's cultural heritage. For educators, it is also our responsibility to inherit and develop the quintessence of ethnic culture," said Li Yao, principal of the school.

"We hope that students will enjoy and inherit Miao culture under the influence of pleasing lusheng rhythms and cheerful dance moves," Li added.

Lusheng ance of the Miao ethnic group, also called gunshanzhu by local residents, is a form of acting that integrates lusheng rhythms, dance movements and acrobatics.

It was approved by the State Council as a national intangible cultural heritage in 2006.
