In China, it common to see older women dancing together in parks and other open spaces as a form of exercise. It’s China, so of course, these exercise sessions are organized and planned – no random dancing to whatever music you might want! Typically, the older ladies use a “boom box” or other portable sound equipment to play the music to which they all dance together. Often there are dozens of women dancing; the music can be quite loud, so they can all hear it. The loud music often disturbs people living and working nearby, so the women sometimes aren’t so popular with their neighbors.
Well, some of these dancing aunties/grannies have come up with a solution. Xinhua news reports that one group of women have all bought headphones, so they can hear the music without disturbing their neighbors. Nice!
