Dancers check each other's makeup and costumes before the show.

Unlike previous shows, the troupe features new faces this time, with dancers all aged around 15, according to their sign-language instructor, Li Wenqian.

Established in 1987, the troupe has performed in over 70 countries and districts. With the Thousand Hands Dance as its calling card, the troupe has established a charity foundation called My Dream. In the past three years, it has donated 8.5 million yuan to domestic charities and some 815,000 yuan to international causes.
