Many believe that there are at least about 300 different dances with hundred names and thousands of dance teps, which categorized by how they dance, could falls into six big groups, namely, dance to drums, dance to songs, dance to strings, dance to lamps and random dances.

Many dances are carried down from generation to generation completely. Most of them have been refined, developed and standardized through years of festivals, performances and ceremonies. Being regarded as a live museum of history, the folk dances in Yunnan have been protected and preserved in the different places where the dances originated.
