"Restart the Journey" is one of the seven performances titled "Chinese Sprit and Dream: National Young Dancers Development", which was staged in Beijing from Nov 22 to Dec 16. They display the achievements of a plan to cultivate young dancers in China, jointly sponsored by the China Federation of Literary and Art Circles, Chinese Dancers Association and China Literature and Art Foundation.

The plan was proposed by the Association in 2014 and aims to lend special support to innovative and talented young dancers. Through establishing platforms, promoting original works and providing opportunities for international communication, the plan is set to give young dancers complete guidance and cultivation.

The Association expects the plan to attract more young dancers to be involved and create a series of high-quality dances, becoming a leading program to increase the talent of China's dance circle.
