Regarding the learning of Chinese martial arts as "eye-opening", Mia, another performer with 10-year dancing experience, told Xinhua that it has given her a different idea and exceeded her expectation of dance, which is "really funny and interesting".

The mentality behind the White Crane practice impressed her the most, as the dancers have to hold a typical gesture to collect inner energy, she said.

Seeing the Hong Kong-Sydney dance collaboration from idea to fruition, Linda Gamblin, head of training at Sydney Dance Company, said that she is keen to help Australian dancers find an internal position of understanding their movements through this cultural exchange project.
