Animal biomimetic dance is more about imitating animal characteristics or body shape, it is combined with human limb movement, and then refined and artistically processed to show you. In order to express some thoughts and feelings of human beings, it is also a form of artistic expression. These animals with special interests imitate dancing, it also occupies an important position in the treasure house of Chinese folk culture and art. It is an important part of our national culture and art. This paper studies and discusses the changes of social system, the migration of minority population, the change of education mode and the aging of minority population, the influence on the cultural inheritance of bionic dance of minority animals. It is also found that the bionic dance of animals with minority characteristics is passed down from generation to generation through words and deeds. But with the aging phenomenon, many of them are on the verge of being lost; moreover, many of them are handed down orally without written records. This also laid a hidden danger for the loss of traditional dance. Therefore, it should be propaganda and expansion, to improve the awareness of contemporary people about minority dance, the traditional bionic dance of animals is displayed in the classroom, let more teenagers know the bionic dance of minority animals and promote its better development.
