Largest Umbrella Dance

Umbrella Dancing is mostly performed during China's Lantern Festival Days.

10,580 people performed the ancient Chinese Umbrella dance - setting a new world record.

The dance, which dates back hundreds of years, involves a performer moving with a traditional Chinese umbrella in time to the music.

Usually, only a handful of dancers takes part in the show, which is traditionally performed by people from China's Dai ethnic minority when celebrating festivals like the water-splashing festival and the New Year of Dai.

But 10,580 people managed to take part in a large-scale version of the dance in Jinghong city, southwest China's Yunnan province.

In their brightly-colored traditional Chinese outfits and matching umbrellas, the dancers formed patterns with their orchestrated movements.
