Square dancing has been a popular form of entertainment for middle-age and elderly Chinese women. Every day at morning and dusk, Chinese aunties, also known as dama in Mandarin, gather outdoors to dance for hours on squares. The daily occurrence is also an opportunity for participants to meet new friends and socialize with their neighbors.

To show a glimpse of the fun and popularity of the event, photographers took to the streets to record the dancing and movement. Here is a selection of the photographs.
