While square dancing may seem like an unlikely craze, the Tangdou Square Dance app has made the activity a hugely popular pastime in China. Dubbed "the Tinder of square dancing," the app is now the go-to platform for those looking for the perfect square dancing partners.
Originally a video-sharing website, Tangdou has evolved to become the premier social platform for square dancing fans. The app largely works by matching aspiring dancers with potential partners. Users can then chat through the app and arrange local events. However, the biggest draw of the app is the video feature, which highlights tutorials and performances from dance groups across China.
While the app may not be for everyone, its popularity demonstrates the growing demand for social matchmaking apps that connect those with common interests.
