Seniors defer to students who are experiencing high pressure

Senior residents in a county in Hunan province have decided to stop their square dancing exercises for 10 days to create a quiet environment for the gaokao, the national college entrance exam, which will be held from Wednesday to Friday nationwide.

Some 5,000 women in Ningyuan county agreed to pause the activity they love starting from June 1. The central part of the county, previously full of square dancers and loud music, has recently become quiet.
