A nation-wide dance contest launched on Sunday in southwest China’s Guizhou Province, is bringing scores of dancers together from across the country. Hundreds of competitors took part in the first round of auditions in Beijing. All have brought their best, trying to win a spot in the final contest.

Folk dance, jazz, Ballet, hip-hop, Latin, every competitor brought their A game. Each of them was given 90 seconds, and their fate was decided by the jury made up of three specialists. On average, one out of 20 competitors would have the chance to enter the second round. The winner of auditions will participate in the final contest broadcast on Guizhou TV.

Besides professional dancers, many amateurs also gave eye catching performances. Tang Qi, a mobile phone engineer is one of them.

Tang Qi, competitor, said, "I’m very glad that I passed the first round. I will show my best, and keep enjoying dance, which is part of my life."

During the first round audition, a group of dancers caught the jury’s attention. From their beautiful movements, it’s hard to realize that all of them are deaf-mute, and they have to rely on sign language to dance.

The dances said, "We hope that we can go to a bigger stage, and to be better known throughout the world."

Named "Colorful Guizhou", the competition has already become well-known across the nation.

For jury members, it is a good opportunity for the development of Chinese dances.

Teng Aiming, jury member, said, "This competition provides a chance to spread the local culture of Guizhou. And I believe that it is not just a national contest, but will turn into a global brand."

Thousands of Chinese dancers are expected to take part in the competition. The winner will get a 50,000 yuan award.
