In this episode, Ukrainian performer Natalie practices the Song of Jade and Gentlemen - a sensational dance piece from dance drama Confucius - in the rehearsal room of the China National Opera & Dance Drama Theater.

As the advanced classical Chinese dance requires complex footwork and synchronized hand movements along with rhythm, will Natalie, a first-time dancer, be able to keep up under Chinese dancer Yu Yu's guidance?

The short-video series, Discover Chinese art @CNODDT, with seven episodes in total, is co-produced by the China National Opera and Dance Drama Theater and China Daily Website. The series will be uploaded online on Mondays and Wednesdays.

Let's embrace Chinese culture this summer and get immersed in the richness of traditional Chinese music and dance!
