An interesting insight about the connection between Chinese language and its culture. Jessica Kuach and Leon Chow are classical Chinese dancers and members of the Shen Yun Performing Arts Company which performs classical Chinese dance around the world. As professional dancers, they train for fourteen hours every day, learning acrobatics, technique, acting, and choreography. And though they both live in New York City, they spend their days speaking in Chinese.
