As the principal dan上海品茶微信nd dozens of other da

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

nd Canada in late August, representing the troupe’s first performance of the classic outside of China.上海品茶微信

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

pcoming live-action remake of Mulan has sparked renewed interest in the character.

上海品茶微信The 100 plus-minute ballet Hua Mulan incorporates classic and modern art elements that will suit the taste of today’s a

udiences at home and abroad, according to Wang Yong, choreographer-director of the show.

“We shared a youth and a dream,” said Cheng, who over the years has sent more than a few

US players to national and international competitions. “Looking back, I’m a natural teacher.”上海419

Cheng’s last appearance in the World Table Tennis Championships was in 2009 in Yokohama, Japan, when he was 51.

上海419Last month, Zhang had his own reunion when he trained with the Beijing Provincial Team. “Some of my former teamm

ates have today become the main strength for Chinese table tennis. And I feel so happy for them – I really am,” he said. “But上海419品茶微信

I have no regrets – what I have learned and what I have been through here have made me a more rounded person.”

上海419An emotional moment came rather unexpectedly for Zhang one morning. “I was at the table hitti
