On October 16, San Chay people’s dance in Phu Luong district, the northern province Thai Nguyen was declared a national intangible cultural heritage.

Tac Xinh dance is a form of performing that has been preserved and passed on by San Chay people for generations. It expresses their gratitude to their ancestors and the spiritual connections between nature and mankind, life and death, and the old and the young, as well as stimulating the wish to control nature.

It has been performed all over Viet Nam since 1996 and won the first prize at the Viet Nam Folk Songs and Dances Festival in 2013.

The dance, popular in Yen Lac, Tuc Tranh and Phu Do communes, comprises nine patterns that feature daily life, including building houses, picking fruit, clearing land and celebrating harvests.

The recognition is expected to contribute to the preservation and development of Vietnamese cultural values.
