15-year-old girl amazingly spins 4 hours non-stop as part of China's Lunar New Year celebration
Wei Caiqi is the niece of the great Yang Liping, a Chinese dancing treasure who first dazzled audiences with her starring role in the performance art show “Dynamic Yunnan.” Wei Caiqi has also taken the spotlight by playing the part of the “Time Girl” in the Spring Festival Gala of 2014, a role which requires her to spin nonstop for 4 hours.
The 15-year old dancer not only spun for 4 hours, but she also had to gradually accelerate as the clock ticked closer to midnight. While Wei Caiqi thought of the piece as a sort of “spiritual cultivation,” or meditation, many netizens on the Chinese microblogging platform Sina Weibo had other things to say about her part.
Keeping her arms raised outward for four hours must have been tiring too. What a workout!
