It's like ballet on water. The single bamboo drift is a special skill originating from the time of the Thong in southwest China.

Performers stand on just one bamboo log and drift along a river rapid performing various stunts. The incredible balancing act attracts hundreds of tourists and visitors from across the country every year. The technique has become so popular it is now a fixture at the annual Chinese National Ethnic Sports Games.

Interesting words: drift (slow movement), log (thick piece of wood from a tree), rapid (fast part of a river), stunt (dangerous action that is done to entertain people), fixture (sport match).
