ncers from the Liaoning Ballet of China will take their original ballet Hua Mulan to the United States a

For Yu, who entered the Liaoning Ballet in 2009, it has been a unique process.
“In the past, I often played the roles of a swan or a princess. This tim上海品茶微信
e, I had to become a man who is ultimately found to be a woman,” she says. To act Mulan’s p
art well, she had to do push-ups and fight with sticks on stage, just like the male dancers.
上海品茶微信The story originates from a Northern Dynasty (386-581) folk song, known as the Ballad of Mulan. The song tells the tal
e of a valiant girl who joins the army on behalf of her ailing father, battles enemies to defend her country and fights with
high distinction. However, she refuses the accolades thrust upon her and ultimately retires to her hometown.上海品茶微信
Besides the physical techniques required, Chinese b
allet cares about portraying its characters’ inner world and expressing emotions.
“Playing the legendary warrior has made me grow up and deepened my understanding of performance, life and Chin上海品茶微信
ese culture,” Yu says. “You should be able to impress yourself before you can impress your audience.”
Qu Zijiao, 57-year-old director of the Liaoning Ballet, says: “To tell Ch
上海品茶微信inese stories to global audiences, the legend of Mulan is more relatable than others.”
She says it is a touching story, and Mulan’s heroic spirit, perseverance, and love fo
r country and peace can resonate with people everywhere, adding that many European and American audiences are
already familiar with her story thanks to Disney’s classic animated film, which introduced上海品茶微信
the legend of Mulan to the West. Additionally, the recent release of initial footage from Disney’s u

Tired of noise complaints, the Nanning Dream Team ditched the speakers and added individual headsets to make sure they上海千花坊品茶微信
can still enjoy dancing in the community, but in what to neighbors must be a more civilized way.
In a city square in Nanning, South China’s Guangxi Zhuang autonomous region, nearly 100 seniors concentrated on
following the moves of their dance leader while wearing headsets to listen to the music.上海千花坊
Many passersby did a double take when they saw the dance team go through a rout
上海千花坊品茶微信ine, seemingly without any audible music blaring from loudspeakers.
When asked why they dance in this way, they said they had no other choice
.– The area where they dance is between two close residential buildings, so noise e
choed and disturbed nearby residents. Surrounding merchants and residents used to complain about the noise they m上海千花坊
ade. Some even splashed water or threw items from the upstairs floors of buildings close by.
The team leader, surnamed Yang, said the dancers didn’t want to annoy上海千花坊品茶微信
the neighbors, and that’s why she suggested the group dance with headsets.
This perfect solution has ended complaints, simply via a small tran上海千花坊
smitter which can set channels and transmit the signals, creating the music all the dancers listen to simultaneously.
“I bought the device at my own expense, while our dancers pay for their own head上海千花坊品茶微信
sets,” Yang said. “Dancers can adjust the volume of their wireless headset and select stereo mode, which is ve
ry beneficial for us to enjoy dancing and not disturb others anymore. What a win-win solution!”
