Photo Of The Day – Ribbon Dancing

A man practices ribbon twirling (more like dancing) with a very long red piece of cloth

A man practices what I would describe as ribbon dancing in the park at the Summer Palace in Beijing, China.

The parks in Beijing, and I’m assuming all of China as well, are filled with people doing all manner of creative things.  Among the singers, Tai Chi, and other creative practitioners, I happened upon this small group dancing with ribbons by the lake.  While one woman was extremely proficient at handling two at once, this man seemed to be having more fun, and was much more active.
