Artists with disabilities perform for athletes at Beijing 2022 Winter Paralympics

By Global Times


Holding cheer balls and whirling to the rhythm of a conductor, a group of Chinese artists with disabilities gave a performance for the Beijing 2022 Winter Paralympics at the Yanqing Medals Plaza in Yanqing District, Beijing.

The 24 performers from Southwest China's Chongqing Municipality were selected from China Disabled People's Performing Art Troupe, according to a video clip posted by the official account of Beijing 2022 on China's Twitter-like Sina Weibo on Tuesday.


"Our team consists of one lead, two sign language teachers, 16 dancers with hearing impairment, and eight singers and musicians with visual impairment," Yang Qian, head of the artists' group, said in the video.


"Since accepting the performance request in mid-January, besides the tight schedule we also faced many new challenges," said Yang.
