GENTING HIGHLANDS: A shower of confetti cascades down on the performers in a fitting finale to the Gala Night show of the Dances of the Dynasties. 

Amid loud applause from the 1,200 patrons, Shanghai Song and Dance Ensemble troupe leader Huang Qianming took a bow and later led principal dancer Huang Doudou and lead dancer Wu Wei from the stage to greet Datin Paduka Seri Endon Mahmood at the VVIP box. 

She was presented with a bouquet of flowers by some of the dancers. 

It was a far better show than the previous performances since the opening show on Friday as the dancers had adapted to the altitude and the stage here.

And what a night it was for more than 1,200 VVIPs and VIPs.

Throughout the 90-minute performance, the Shanghai-based dancers charmed the audience at the Genting International Showroom with their graceful twirls and moves as they chronicled the rich Chinese art, history and culture spanning 5,000 years. 

Their costumes and accessories colourfully matched the different dynasties – Tang, Song, Yuan, Ming and Qing.  

The dancers received rapturous applause when they executed unique dance moves such as when one dancer spun his long hair in a circle.  

TV3 CEO Datuk Ahmad Farid Ridzuan described the Gala Night show as the best show this year with a wonderful presentation. 

“It has opened our eyes to what a big country like China has to offer to us Malaysians here. 

“I think we should emulate what is being done by The Star. We at TV3 are always following what The Star is doing. 

“And we work together with The Star because the charity work that the company does is something that we salute,” he said.
