After a period of interviewing and observations, we found that Zhuqiao’s daily square dancing “party” might bring engagement opportunities. Every day at dusk, after a day’s work in the field, a group of women gathers to practice square dancing, a popular exercise commonly found in city squares, plazas or parks in China. In the village, a small concrete field right off the country road serves as the dance floor. A smartphone and a small amplifier on the bamboo chair are the only equipment. When the music plays, the ladies give their attention to the video on the tiny screen while refining their steps. Some viewers bring a stool to sit and relax on the side, while some take their grandchildren and move along with the ladies. This is authentic community life.
