为什么中国大妈喜欢在公共场所跳广场舞

You go around China and you will see this pretty common phenomenon happen at night. A bunch of Chinese ladies (mostly middle aged or older) would group up in some public area and start dancing to loud music, like people would in an aerobics class. My guess is this is some sort of Communist/Maoist tradition, rather anything to do with Chinese culture.

去中国,经常看到有人跳广场舞。

一群中国大妈随着喧哗的音乐声中一起跳广场舞,就像在上有氧运动课一样。

我猜这是某种共产主义传统,与中国文化有关。

This is an easy one to answer. Some of these questions on Quora about China seem to be trolling or deliberately trying to project a bad image of China.

这个问题简单。Quora上一些关于中国的问题好像不是故意挑衅,就是企图故意破坏中国形象。

There are no sinister or hidden meanings in why Chinese dance in public. It’s a way to socialize and get some exercise at the same time. Chinese people value health and this is one way to promote a healthy lifestyle. If you ever watch them, they all seem happy. I always wondered what they would think if I joined them. ha!

中国人在公共场所跳广场舞,没特别意思,只是进行社交和锻炼的一种方式。

中国人注重健康,这是一种促进健康的生活方式。他们看着就很开心的那种

我一直在想,如果我加入他们,他们会怎么想。哈!

When I first came to China and saw people dancing in the parks or other public places, my impression was very positive and I thought they must be really happy people. Since then, I have found my initial impression was correct.

我第一次到中国时,看到人们在公园或其他公共场所跳舞,我的印象是好的,认为他们肯定是快乐之人。从那以后,我发现我的第一印象是对的。

My foreign young man , I have to say you ‘re very imaginative , but I can understand ,truly, after all , in many foreigners perspective, anything relate to China can be communist.
So let me tell you the truth , why do old women in China like to dance in public ?

年轻的外国友人,不得不说你想象力丰富,我能理解,对,毕竟很多外国人看来,任何和中国相关的东西都能标榜为共产主义。

告诉你实情吧,为什么中国大妈喜欢在公共场所跳舞。

Very simple, because they feel so bored and couldn’t find another interesting entertainment to kill the time , and gather friends to dance in public is the only option they have .
By the way , this phenomenon you can mostly seen in city rather than country because country old women always can get themselves busy.

很简单,因为她们觉得无聊,找不到其他有趣的能消磨时间的娱乐项目,组织朋友在公共区域跳广场舞成了唯一选择。

顺便说一下,这种氛围通常能在城市里看到,在农村比较难看到。农村大妈不会无聊,总能让自己忙起来。

I know you will keep asking me why , okay , let me explain.
You said old women , then I assume you’re talking about over 60 years old women , that’s 1950s when they were born . Back at that time , People’s Republic of China was just established ,people were poor , hungry and less educated , and honestly saying , they fought for food and warm for their whole life , singing and dancing probably the only entertainment they knew.

也许你会问我为啥,好,我解释一下。

大妈,是60岁以上的老年妇女,她们在上世纪50年代出生。回到那时,中华人民共和国刚成立,人们又穷又饿,受教育程度还低。老实说,她们一生都在为温饱做斗争,唱歌跳舞是她们的唯一娱乐。

We all know that old people usually refuse new things , and this not only just in China, but all round the world. So when the 1950s people get old, most of them don’t know how to use smart phone , don’t know what is social media , and don’t know many things about internet .
Now imagine , you’re one of them , you retired , the major activity is keep the house clean and make food for your kids.

众所周知,老年人总拒绝新事物,这不只是发生在中国,全世界都一样。50年代的人变老后,他们大多数人不知道怎么用智能手机,不懂什么是社交媒体,不了解很多网络的事情。

现在想象一下,你是他们中的一员,你退休了,主要活动是打扫房子,做饭给孩子吃。

But you still got plenty of time after finishing this, how to spend your time ? you don’t know what is computer not even mention internet, and watch TV is bored to death .
What to do now ?
Yes, go gather your friends to make some fun, let’s dance in public!

做完这些后,仍有大把时间,怎么消磨你的时间呢?你不知道什么是电脑,更别说互联网了,看电视也无聊到死。

现在做什么?

对,集合你的朋友做点有趣的事情,让我们在公共场所跳舞吧!

I think in one particular moment they must feel like a super star when people gather around to watch them shaking their body. I can feel them , but I will never do that when I get old, it’s just too bored for me, plus I’m a terrible dancer.
I will rather teach my 7 year old grandson how to play League Of Legends when I’m 60s.

我想,当人们聚在一起看着她们摇摆身体时,某个特定时刻,她们一定觉得自己是巨星。

我能理解他们,但我老的时候绝不那么做,那对我来说很无聊,况且我一点也不会跳舞。

我60多岁时,我宁愿教我7岁的孙子怎么玩英雄联盟。
