Online dance studio for children takes flight

A public-welfare online dance studio run by a hearing-impaired dancer, targeting children with or without hearing loss, has been launched at the Shanghai Songjiang Media Center recently.

The online studio is an extension of the brick-and-mortar Tianjiao Dance Studio, China's first dance community exclusively for both children with or without hearing loss.

"The pandemic reduces my frequency of meeting the children, so it's important to launch an online studio," said Zhang Tianjiao, the 25-year-old studio instructor.

Zhang has been using a hearing aid since childhood and can speak but can better express herself as a dancer though her steps, postures and facial expressions. She demonstrated her skills at the launch ceremony.
