Chopsticks dance

The chopsticks dance was originally a single men's dance at marriage ceremonies or festivals, usually accompanied by a stringed instrument and singing.

Today, people tie chopsticks together with a small rope and decorate them with red silks, making a bright stage prop. Performers can hold the chopsticks in one or two hands.
