城市公共空间是人们在城市中生活交流必不可少的场所,而广场舞是中国独有的城市公共运动之一。无论是在北上广深等一线城市,还是在普通的乡村县城,夜幕降临后,几乎每个城市的公共空间都可以看到人们跳广场舞的身影。广场舞的类型十分丰富,包括集体操,民族舞,吉特巴,鬼步舞,交际舞,室外蹦迪等等。参与广场舞的大多是中老年人,在路边找一片空地,打开音响功放,就会有一群人随之起舞。广场舞不限制他人参与,甚至也有外国人加入其中,感受这种独特的“中国Style”。然而,这项活动虽然给中老年人的生活带来了许多乐趣,但是其伴随的音乐却可能影响周边居民的正常生活,跳舞者和居民之间的矛盾时常发生。广场舞对城市公共空间的利用究竟如何?跳舞者和普通群众如何看待城市公共空间?gooood随机采访了富力广场和奥森公园的跳舞者和路人,听听他们怎么看待广场舞和城市公共空间。

在采访的跳舞者中,大家普遍是吃完晚饭后七点左右来跳舞,富力广场离居民区较近,所以最晚九点半就结束;奥森公园的活动会延续到晚上十点。这些跳舞者大多是自发聚集起来的,有些有专门的老师指导,规模可达上百人。关于为何选择跳广场舞,有人认为广场舞是中国最流行的运动,它不仅可以锻炼身体,还有助于人们社交,在城市中认识新的朋友。关于跳舞地点的选择,不影响周边居民生活是重要的考虑因素之一,宽敞、灯光明亮、交通方便、地面平整等也是许多人选择地点的理由。让我们没有想到的是,很多跳舞者会关注城市的灯光,希望灯光更符合舞蹈的情绪。谈及理想的城市公共空间,首先是要来去便利;有些人认为城市提供给中老年人的活动场所不够多,最好能在城市公园里专门开辟一些跳舞的场地。

采访的普通群众中,由于选择的两个采访地点不会对居民生活造成干扰,大家都很喜欢人们跳广场舞,认为这项活动可以让城市空间更加热闹、充满活力。他们认为如何使用城市公共空间是人们的自由,广场舞很好地利用了城市规划,此外还可以唱歌、办画展等,把城市中闲散的空间都利用起来。中老年人容易孤独,需要参加集体活动,与社区建立联系。结合受访者的回答,人们认为理想的城市公共空间则应该是自由开放的,人们可以在这里运动、娱乐,分享音乐、艺术和不同观点。

Public space is important for people to live and communicate in the city. Square dancing is a unique public exercise in China. From metropolis like Beijing and Shanghai, to small towns in the countryside, we can find dancers in every public space when night comes. There are many dancing styles in square dancing, including group dance, folk dance, Jitterbug, shuffle dance, ballroom dance and disco dance, etc. Most of the participants are elder people and they could start dancing wherever they put on the music. Everyone could join in and even foreign people would enjoy the activity to experience this “Chinese Style”. Though square dancing is popular among elder people, residents could be annoyed by the loud music and sometimes there would be conflicts between them. How do people use city’s public space to dance and how do they look at it? We randomly interviewed some dancers and pedestrians in front of the VIVA and in the Olympic Forest Park to see their opinions on square dancing and public space.

Due to the dancers, they usually come to dance after diner at around seven, and go back home at nine to ten according to the situation. Under the instruction by a dancing teacher, people gathered spontaneously. They think square dancing is China’s most popular exercise which could not only make people healthier, but also help them to meet more friends. The dancers would take the residents’ right into consideration and look for a quiet and large place to dance. Illumination is also an important feature for the place and some people think it should fit the music and dance better. When talk about ideal public space, convenient transportation is necessary. They think that there are not enough spaces for elder people and we could develop some squares for dancing in the city parks.

As the two squares we chose have some distance from the residential area, the pedestrians did not show unhappiness about square dancing. They thing the activity makes the city more lively. It is people’s right to use public space as they like and square dancing could make use of the space efficiently. As elder people might feel lonely, it is important for them to take part in group activities and build relationship with the community. According to the interviewees, an ideal public space should be free and open to everyone. People could move their bodies and entertain themselves in the space, as well as sharing music, art and ideas.
