Wow.....I did the bamboo dance for a cultural performance night during my time at National Service. But the one in the video is a totally different level! Make us seem like noobs.

Hello Stanley, thank you for the visit and comment. Glad you found this bamboo dance entirely different. I tried it there, but at level 1 speed and even that, the bamboo got my legs hehe.
