There are about 30 Xoe dances.

There are about 30 Xoe dances, which have been developed, protected and handed down intact through generations over hundreds of years, including xoe quat (xoe dance with a fan), xoe khan (xoe dance with a scarf), xoe non (xoe dance with a conical hat) and many others with contents reflecting community activities and expressing the Thai people’s emotion.

With gentle and alluring rhythms, dancers usually form a circle around a festive flame and move to the sound of melodic traditional music.

The Xoe Thai dance has been recognised as a national intangible cultural heritage since 2015, and a profile will soon be submitted to UNESCO for recognition as an intangible cultural heritage of humanity.
