KASHGAR, March 8 (Xinhua) -- Amina Yusup is the leader of a dance troupe in Kashgar, northwest China's Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region. She joined the dance team when she was 17 and has been performing on stage for more than 20 years.

After becoming the leader of the dance troupe in 2020, Amina put more efforts into organizing members to practice and rehearse. She said the stage should be given to young people to show their talents.

Apart from a dancer, Amina is also an active advocator of traditional dance. She is now studying choreography, hoping to innovate the folk dance.
