Relying only on signals from trainers at the four corners of the stage, these extraordinary dancers deliver a visual spectacle that is intricate and stirring. It's first major international debut was in Athens at the closing ceremonies for the 2004 Paralympics.
But it had long been in the repertoire of the Chinese Disabled People's Performing Art Troupe and had traveled to more than 40 countries.
The lead dancer is 29 year old Tai Lihua, who has a BA from the Hubei Fine Arts Institute. The video was recorded in Beijing during the Spring Festival this year.
