Dancing aunties and uncles return to Wuhan sidewalks


After months spent in lockdown, aunties and uncles in Wuhan have returned to public squares and sidewalks to dance the coronavirus blues away.
Dancing aunties are typically a ubiquitous sight in Chinese cities but became rare following the Covid-19 outbreak as residents were instructed to quarantine and isolate themselves.
While some may have counted the disappearance of the noisy and occasionally troublesome dancers as one of the few perks of the pandemic, we cant think of a more iconic sign for a return to at least semi-normalcy in China.
As Wuhan eases its lockdown, older residents affectionately known as aunties or uncles are once again taking to public squares and dancing into the night in what has become a national pastime.
