Sophie Marceau takes to Chinese square dancing
French actress Sophie Marceau recently joined middle-aged Chinese women for a square dance in the southern city of Guangzhou, a local newspaper reported.
Popular with Chinese audiences, the actress frequently visits China for cultural exchange events or promotional activities for endorsed brands.
The Parisian beauty said as a French woman she may only have one chance in her life to dance like this and "it just feels great."
Current humid weather in Guangzhou did not seem to dampen her spirits. She said she isn't bothered by the weather and looks forward to some good local cuisine.
Many elderly women enjoy swiveling their hips and rolling their arms in parks and plazas across the country, but it's not to everyone's liking since the music -- pop from the present and decades ago -- can be loud and disturbing.
Netizens are quite pleased with Marceau's participation, with one comment saying she added ballet elements to the Chinese-style dance.
