What are the 10 dances?

The 10 dances are: A tai chi-like form of dance, in which we have an internal rotation and a step by step motion; The wu-t’ai dance, which has a step like that of the step of the dancer; The bistro, which is a group of dancers with a rhythm, and then a group in which they join in to form a whole; The ball movement, which comes after every step the dancer makes with his legs; The back step, which comes after every dance that the dancers have been doing; And the step-toss, which comes after each dance the dancers have been doing.

When you sing with your head in your hands, then what you actually remember is what you are saying to yourself, your speech or your speech-voice.
