(Clearwisdom.net) Dance can be a specific expression of "culture," which is an abstract concept. Dance also helps people learn about culture through what they can see. A dance competition not only critiques dance technique, but looking more in depth, it evaluates the cultural contents encompassed by the dance. I believe the dance competition helps to define a genuine divine culture.

During the promotion of the dance competition, the topics of traditional Chinese culture and the representation of a divine culture should be addressed. There are two aspects to be considered when promoting the dance competition. First, while talking to Chinese people about the dance competition, they will not think we are being political unless we have fear and expose an omission in ourselves. We can naturally bring up the topic of how the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) brought Chinese society to decline in terms of morality. We can use detailed information from the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party to explain how the CCP has destroyed traditional Chinese culture.

The second aspect concerns a statement made by Master:

"No matter which country you're in, you were first Chinese on this earth, because your first incarnation was there." ("Touring North America to Teach the Fa")

Every country in the world is involved in the wicked Communist system in some fashion. Therefore, disintegrating the evil specter behind the system is very necessary. The promotion of this competition should include not only Chinese people but Westerners as well. An emphasis should be placed on clarifying the truth. Examples of issues to be covered while clarifying the truth to Westerners include how Chinese culture is being destroyed by the inherent evil in communism, why we promote genuine traditional culture among Chinese, and how these things are related to investing in China. We should also explain how the demise of the CCP will end the persecution of Falun Gong and bring stability to society.

When people learn the importance of traditional culture, they will see the value of this competition, and perhaps participate in, promote, or sponsor the event. Our first step is to clarify the truth about the reasons for having this competition, and that will help to ensure its success.
