Moves on water - level 2

Tourists and people in southwest China have a new attraction. They come to see something which looks slightly like ballet on water.

The performers stand on a long bamboo log which moves in the water. They also perform all kinds of special tricks which need perfect balance.

This is an old activity but it's getting more and more popular these days. It has been officially recognized as a traditional Chinese sport.

Interesting words: performer (actor, musician or sportsman who does a show for people), log (long part of a tree), recognize (officially accept).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
