A Balletic Ball GameA combination of sport and dance, chinlone -- the national sport of Myanmar -- is truly a beautiful game. The rules of the game are pretty simple. Around six people assemble in a circle and pass a rattan ball back and forth between each other with their feet, knees and head. Occasionally one member of the group will enter the middle of the circle to solo, creating a dance of various moves strung together. The ball becomes dead when it hits the ground and the entire endeavour starts afresh.
