Read the paragraph below FIRST before you watch the video.

There is an awesome dance, called the Thousand-Hand Guan yin, which is making the rounds across the net. Considering the tight coordination required, their accomplishment is nothing short of amazing, even if they were not all deaf.

Yes, you read correctly. All 21 of the dancers are complete deaf-mutes. Relying only on signals from trainers at the four corners of the stage, these extraordinary dancers deliver a visual spectacle that is at once intricate and stirring.

Its first major international debut was in Athens at the closing ceremonies for the 2004 Paralympics. But it had long been in the repertoire of the Chinese Disabled People's Performing Art Troupe and had travelled to more than 40 countries.

Its lead dancer is 29 year old Tai Lihua, who has a BA from the Hubei Fine Arts Institute. The video was recorded in Beijing during the Spring Festival this year.

That is amazing. I'm sure Crowder's wimmens could do it better, but I will settle for watching these ladies.

When I was in Sri Lanka we saw a dance troupe like that used their hands, and feet to make patterns they are very good, and spectacular to see live.
