> In a Chinese modern dance competition on TV one 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 was
> 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. 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."
