Havelock Ellis, Dance of Life, 1923

In early March 2015, the Chinese government issued twelve “model” routines for over 100 million practitioners of guangchang wu throughout the country.

Originally intended to be the only sanctioned plaza dances, the immediate backlash (跳啥你们也要管?) caused the General Administration of Sport to rescind and soften its previous edict, calling it a misunderstanding:
“This set of twelve routines are only a recommendation and scientific guidance… Whether the exercises are good or not – and recognized by the people – is not for the government to say. It is ultimately up to the people’s vote.”
