50-year-old Fan Duo and his 45-year-old wife Peng Xiaoying now live on an 8-acre farm in a village called Xia’ao near the southern coast of China’s Zhejiang province with their two children.

They Used To Be Businessmen


They used to own a shoe store in Yunnan province about 18 years ago, but things changed when Fan Duo had a car accident.

The Accident’s Impact


Fan Duo had a cracked jaw, lost multiple teeth, and suffered from depression and PTSD or Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.

They Had Different Interests


When the couple moved to Shandong, Fan Duo started working for a clothing business while Peng Xiaoying would go into the town square each night to watch people dance.

Farm Life


Eventually, Peng Xiaoying decided to move back to her rural hometown, and Fan Duo soon followed. Since then, they started helping in taking care of her family’s farmland.

Peng Xiaoying encouraged her husband to learn the steps of the dances she saw and practiced in the city square before. Since then, the couple would stop and dance whenever and wherever they feel like it.
