On occasions of Chapchar Kut festival the boys and girls would dance
chai the whole night. The boys would sit with their backs to the wall. Each boy would have a girl sitting in front of him, in between his knees, with her back towards him. Individual dancers would perform in the clearing in the middle, all the others joining in the music.
The young folk would perform another type of dance in the open courtyard. They would create a circle with a girl in between two boys with their arms over the shoulders of the girls.
In the midst of the circle, one would beat a drum or gong and all in the circle would move forward and backward and would also progress slowly along the circle. The person in the middle would recite a song and the refrain would be taken up by all. All the time the dancers would get rounds of Zu and the dance would last as long as the supply of Zu could be kept up.
