If the community is a miniature society, then people’s life and recreation here is people’s living conditions of a city in miniature. Recently, six foreigners, at the invitation of “Touch Shandong” column, went to Lyuyuan Community in Jinan to get a glimpse of Shandong’s cultural construction in community.

Yu Cuijie, the deputy director of Lyuyuan Community, briefed the foreigners on the community construction. Gymnasium, dance room, chess and card room…foreigners gasped with admiration at the advanced service infrastructure and strong cultural ambience of the community.

Yu Cuijie said that the community has been making efforts to complete the functional facilities, improve the service level, promote advanced culture and explore a linked mechanism of voluntary service, which have greatly inspired the role of society in community construction and further boosted the community’s overall level of civilization and level of comprehensive management. The community has cultivated two social organizations.

The Majority of dancers in the dance squad of the community are elderly people. They usually practice their performance in the daytime and gather at night in the community’s square to dance, which is known as square dancing.

When the six foreigners arrived at the community, the dance squad was in rehearsal. The dancers welcomed them with warm greetings and invited them join in the dancing. Then the dancers taught the foreigners square dancing step by step. Though they had no experience in square dancing, the six foreigners learned it very quickly and totally immerse themselves in the cheerful music.

As the creation of modern urban square, the square dancing is not only a kind of cultural phenomenon but also a sort of social phenomenon that is worthy of attention. On the one hand, the square dancing reflects the level of the community construction in a city, and on the other hand it manifests the degree of people’s life satisfaction under socialist system.

After the activity, the foreigners told reporters that they were astonished by the progresses of China’s community construction.
