Water drum dance is a unique dance performed by the Miao ethnic group during their sacrificial offering ceremony. All performers were dressed in traditional costumes of the Miao ethnic group, dancing to the drumbeat around a giant wooden drum in the center of the square.

Owing to its spectacular performance and over 500 years of history, the dance has won several international awards. It was also honored as an intangible cultural heritage of Guizhou province.
