Did China Create These Amazing Dancing Robots?

Did China create these amazing dancing robots for Shanghai Disneyland, beating even the Japanese?

Watch the viral clip for yourself, and find out what the FACTS really are!

 

Claim : China Created These Amazing Dancing Robots For Shanghai Disneyland!

Here is the video that countless people have been sharing on social media and even on YouTube. It is often paired with a short explanation in (broken) English.

This classic dance is only created in China and broadcast in Shanghai Disneyland. They are not female dance artists, but all robots made in China.

The performance time is only about 5 minutes, but the ticket queue time takes 4 hours , The ticket price is 499 yuan.

It has surpassed Japan in complexity, and saw its perfect facial expressions. Send this video to everyone to watch, let us enjoy together…

It’s amazing how graceful these Chinese dancing robots at Shanghai Disneyland are!

The less gullible would point out that it is something you would only expect from professional human dancers, and they would be right.

 

They Are NOT Chinese Dancing Robots At Shanghai Disneyland

There are no Chinese dancing robots at Shanghai Disneyland. Neither is there a show featuring such ballroom dancing.

That was actually a video clip from one of the many competitions broadcast by the CBDF (Chinese Ballroom Dance Federation).

You can see the CBDF logo in the background, at 4:06 and 4:41 in the video. No robot made today can match their agility and grace.

 

Ticket Price For Shanghai Disneyland, Not Dancing Robots

The fake story claimed that the ticket to watch this performance costs 499 Yuan – about US$73 / £55 / RM303. That would be ridiculously exorbitant for a single show.

In truth, that was the cost of an entry ticket to the Shanghai Disneyland when it first opened in February 2016.

Since 6 June 2018, it has been priced at 399 Yuan (off-peak), 575 Yuan (peak) and 665 Yuan (peak holiday).

Disneyland also does NOT charge extra to watch live performances in their parks. Their ticket prices are all-inclusive for rides and shows. You only need to pay extra for food and drinks, arcade games or Disney Fastpasses.

Otherwise, all rides and live performance are free to enjoy once you enter Disneyland.

 

Why Would People Create This Fake Chinese Dancing Robots Story?

With China’s aggressive foreign stance in recent years, it is not uncommon to see such fake stories being created and shared.

Some believe it’s part of a concerted attempt to burnish China’s image overseas.

Others believe the many fake stories are being created to drown out the negative coverage of China’s controversial Belt and Road Initiative, and their aggressive moves in the South China Sea.

Whatever the reasons may be, it is our duty as global citizens to stop the proliferation of such fake stories.

Please share this debunking with your friends, so they know the truth!
