After breaking the world record for the longest spinning session when she swirled about for four hours at the annual CCTV Spring Festival Gala earlier this year, the notorious twirl queen We Caiqi made yet another notable public appearance during Shanghai Fashion Week, currently underway in the city.
Nicknamed Xiao Caiqi, or “Little colorful flag”, the girl appeared in a white wedding dress at a Shanghai Fashion Week show on April 10. The 15-year-old niece of famous Chinese dancer Yang Liping became extremely popular after performing as “Time Girl” at the 2014 Spring Festival Gala.
Although netizens were, for the most part, impressed by her balance and grace during the Gala spin, experts tend to question her statements that she did not feel dizzy at all after the four-hour swirl.
Asked for the secret to her success, Xiao Caiqi said: “I actually enjoy twirling; it’s a way of keeping myself calm, like meditation.”
Spin on, dancing queen.
