The folk dance of the Yi people is often inseparable from the singing and instruments performances. One kind of folk dance is originated from productive labor, such as Qiaozi dance, Baogu dance and carpet dance. Most of them simulate labor actions and show production processes. The other kind is danced in festivals or weddings such as the Guo ZHuang dance, Du Huo dance, pair-foot dance, carpet dance and reed dance. Some dances demonstrate the diligent farming and joy of harvest; some demonstrate the bravery of conquest and the pursuit of love.
