Shanghai dancers voice reciprocal support for Japan

Principal dancers with the Shanghai Dance Theatre Zhu Jiejing and Wang Jiajun made a short video voicing their support for people in Japan affected by the novel coronavirus breakout, in gratitude for Japanese dancers' support to China days ago.

The video clip was made and released on Feb 24 by the Shanghai People's Association for Friendship with Foreign Countries and the dance company. The three-minute video showed mutual visits between Chinese and Japanese dance artists, as well as the large amount of medical supplies donated by all walks of people in Japan.

Earlier this month one of the most prestigious ballet companies in the country, the Matsuyama Ballet Troupe, made a video of encouragement for China by singing in Chinese the National Anthem of China, and calling out, "I love China. Be strong, Wuhan. Be strong, China. Be strong, all humans!"

"Now the novel coronavirus breakout has become a disaster faced by not only China and Japan, but even people all over the world," Zhu said in the video, a reciprocal move from the Chinese dancing theater. "Everyone has to be brave, strong and fearless, protecting the earth, our shared home."
