    Subject: The amazing power of human ingenuity and perseverance

    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 right 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 with a sleeve representing her lost arm flying in the breeze . 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 . "
