About 2,000 students and teachers from the Beijing Dance Academy have performed in Spring Flowers and Autumn Fruits - Chinese Art Schools Week since 2008.

"We take the event as a great opportunity to train the students outside the school and connect them with audiences," says Liu Lan, deputy Party secretary from the Beijing Dance Academy.

On Oct 10, students will perform in the original dance drama, Jinggang, Jinggang.

The dance drama is inspired by the Jinggang Mountains in Jiangxi province, where Mao Zedong established a rural revolutionary base in 1927.

Other festival highlights include drama-major performers from the Beijing Film Academy presenting a Chinese adaptation of the ancient Greek tragedy Iphigenia in Tauris by playwright Euripides, and two all-female choirs from Shenyang Conservatory of Music and Xinghai Conservatory of Music.
