[Explanation] Holding a handkerchief, stepping on stilts, spinning a fan, twisting Yangko... This is one of the most popular classes in the School of Music, Dance and Drama, Changchun University of Humanities.

  Stilt Yangko, a traditional Chinese folk dance, is very popular in northern areas.

The Northeast Yangko originated from the long-term social production and practice activities of the working people in Northeast China. It has a history of more than 300 years. It contains the open, diverse and inclusive aesthetic concept and unique aesthetic taste of the Northeast.

  Then this activity is divided into three parts. The first part is an introduction to cultural history. First of all, from the theoretical point of view, the old man is 78 years old, and he gave such an introduction to the students, introducing the history, characteristics, inheritance and future of Northeast Yangko. A detailed explanation of the outlook.

The second part is the experience of stilts.

In the third part, there is also an array of our Northeast Yangko. The old man has been passed on for three generations. To this day, we have preserved the array of Northeast Yangko intact. We also let everyone experience the traditional culture through the practical experience of students.

  [Explanation] Although many "post-00" students stepped on stilts half a meter high for the first time, they did not show tension or fear, but were able to master the essentials within a few minutes.

The students and artists formed a "pair", and together they gave a wonderful performance in the sound of the band's performance.

  The first time, definitely the first time in my life (walking on stilts), it was really amazing.

To be honest, when I first stood up, I felt, it's over, I'm going to drop the chain today.

But in fact, after a while, the teacher took me for a while, I feel that today is really a great harvest.

  When the music sounded, I felt very happy. I was also very happy to take my whole person. I wanted to step on it and try it myself.

I especially hope to spread the words not only in the three northeastern provinces, but also to the south (spread), and let them see the charm of Northeast Yangko.

I think it would be particularly good if you can go abroad.

  Bring traditional culture to these "post-00s".

We are also from several aspects, the first is the curriculum.

So, from the freshman year to the fourth year of university, there is a series of courses in Northeast Yangge.

Then, through a series of activities, such as going outside the campus, to primary and secondary schools, and to the community to carry on the inheritance of traditional culture, let our students act as inheritors and let them apply the knowledge learned on campus to the society.
