|Ancient Hanoian dances receive new lease of life|
A festival of ancient Hanoian dances was held on February 1 to mark the Lunar New Year holiday and included a performance of a dance feared lost for more than half a century.
One of the festival's undoubted highlights was a performance of "the fairy dance", handed down by 85 year old Hoang Ky to the Dong Au Lo Khe club. This dance has not been performed in public for over 60 years, making this performance all the more poignant as it can now be passed on to future generations, ensuring the preservation of this cultural treasure.
