Since the outbreak of 2019 novel coronavirus (COVID-19) across China in early 2020, leaders of the Communist Party of China (CPC) and the state have given earnest consideration to the science-based epidemic prevention and control. With numerous health care professionals bravely saving lives on the frontline and countless ordinary people self-quarantining at home on the advice of experts, China is going all out to contain the COVID-19 spread. At this challenging time, a large number of dancers have taken action to boost people’s morale through dance videos and ease public stress by offering free online dance lessons as workouts. Dance not only can help those stuck in home isolation and those infected with mild symptoms, it can relieve and release negative emotions and stress, but by keeping fit one can strengthen ones’ immune system against the virus. Dance, with its unique aesthetic appreciation and artistic value, plays a significant role in society and humankind amid the epidemic crisis.
