A performance of huolong ganghua, a dance inscribed on the list of Chinese intangible cultural heritage, attracted a huge crowd at the stage at Yingshan Lake of the Huishan Scenic Area in Wuxi on Sept 26. Dragon dancers held a red dragon aloft while dancing among "steel flowers" made with hot rolling steel water.

Huolong ganghua is among China's first batch of intangible cultural heritage projects. The performance, originating from Tongliang of Chongqing, is known as "China's No. 1 dragon dance." Young dancers carry the dragon, tapping the "steel flower" made with hot metal and a special liquid. The “flowers” reach a temperature up to 1500 C.
