Graceful Chinese Dance 【4】 Fu Sheng Ci 优雅中国舞《浮生辞》

Chinese classical dance need not require specifically training individual muscles instead of human body's natural ability, in which the muscle strength gained naturally through walking, running, jumping, etc., as well as the upper-body strength naturally built through physical labor.

Classical Chinese dance has also had a tremendous influence on athletics. Before the 1970s, training in rhythmic gymnastics, the balance beam, and bars involved only simple ballet movements and physical training. Then, China’s gymnastics teams took classical Chinese dance techniques and flips, and used them on a large scale in gymnastics events. As soon as these techniques appeared in international competitions of the 1970s, gymnasts worldwide were astonished. There were Chinese contestants who at one point managed to get five all-around medals. Gymnasts around the world started learning the techniques and flips of classical Chinese dance and, overnight, gymnastics competition was pushed to a higher level of technical skill.

In fact, many different dance forms, physical arts, and sports around the world have adopted the techniques and flips of classical Chinese dance. Some copy them a little better, while others are quite subpar, inaccurate, nonstandard, and even unsightly, and this has distorted the exquisite culture of five thousand years.
