Thumbs up So, you think you can dance?...HELL YEAH!!!



Here's their story .....

In a Chinese modern dance competition on TV, one very unique couple
won one of the top prizes. The lady, in her 30's, was a dancer who had
trained since she was a little girl. Later in life, she lost her
entire left arm in an accident and fell into a state of depression for
a few years. Someone then asked her to coach a Children's dancing
group. From that point on, she realized that she could not forget
dancing. She still loved to dance and wanted to dance again. So, she
started to do some of her old routines, but having lost her arm, she
had also lost her balance. It took a while before she could even make
simple turns and spins without falling. Then she heard of a man in his
20s who had lost a leg in an accident. He had also fallen into the
usual denial, depression, and anger type of emotional roller coaster.
But she determined to find him and persuade him to dance with her. He
had never danced, and to "dance with one leg .... are you joking with
me? No way!" But, she didn't give up, and he reluctantly agreed
thinking, "I have nothing else to do anyway." She started to teach him
dancing 101. The two broke up a few times because he had no concept of
using muscle, how to control his body, and knew none of the basic
things about dancing. When she became frustrated and lost patience
with him, he would walk out. Eventually, they came back together and
started training seriously. They hired a choreographer to design
routines for them. She would fly high (held by him) with both arms (a
sleeve for an arm) flying in the air. He could bend horizontally
supported by one leg with her leaning on him, etc. In the competition,
as you will see, they dance beautifully and they legitimately won the
competition."
