This paper studies the emotional symbolization process of Tibetan dance form. This process is rooted in the cultural form of Tibetan dance, especially in the internal relationship between the emotional form and life style of Tibetan dance. This relationship is mainly reflected through the following four paths. Path 1: emotional symbolization of the life prototype of "bending back and bowing waist"; Path 2: emotional symbolization of "leaning forward" life style; Path 3: emotional symbolization of "circle structure" action behavior; Path 4: emotional symbolization of "dance vocabulary" life events. The theoretical basis for the formation of these four paths lies in perceptual grouping, psychological imitation, and artistic experience composed of "shadow" and "spirit".
