Their singing was the customary high nasal tone which still sounded Dalian Vacations odd to me. But then I also find Italian opera an odd way to sing. Dalian Vacations When they weren’t singing their dances were more complex with quicker foot movements, hopping, stamping, and skipping from side to side, and waving their arms, which all tended to make their headdresses slide lop-sided.
These confections were pillboxes with fins which stuck out upwards and sideways, giving an unusual effect, and for extra security some girls had tied them on with ribbons. The next dance was set to the plaintive notes of a flute and violin, with the girls trilling, calling out, and their hands making the motions of weaving cloth; then kneeling and stitching it with embroidery. Lastly the young people launched into their famous tiger dance.
