If one were to name the dance which best represents the life and beauty of the Kayin people, it is the Doan dance. It is a joyful and gay collective dance which symbolises solidarity. The Doan is presented ensemble and is performed at a quick tempo.
     Forefathers said that the Kayin Doan dance originated from collective social work. In modern times, there have been adaptations to the Doan dance. In the Doan dance, not only are dance movements important but the songs must also be meaningful.
     The songs sung on these occasions are full of "meeting-and-parting" themes, reminding the kith and kin to keep up the friendly spirit among themselves "until we meet again" next year, etc.
