Every year, from the ninth to the 12th day of the lunar calendar, villagers in Trieu Khuc (Thanh Tri district, Hanoi) eagerly enjoy their traditional Trieu Khuc village festival, with the highlight “danh bong” dance - featuring feminine gestures and movements but performed by young men in the village.

The folk dance, which dates back hundreds of years, is not only a unique cultural product, but is also the pride of the Trieu Khuc people. The dance has been preserved and performed as an indispensable part of the village festival, thanks to the efforts of the elderly artists who passed on their passion on preserving the dance on to the next generations.
