"My heart beats along to rhythm when I hear music," says Tianjiao Zhang enthusiastically. "Dancing is a wonderful thing and I feel the music in my heart." Even as a child, the young dancer knew that there was only one career for her, despite her profound hearing loss - and she has been supported in this endeavour by her hearing aids, manufactured by the Sonova brand Phonak, which she has been wearing since early childhood.

Tianjiao Zhang has had an exemplary career. At the age of 16, she became the only competitor with hearing loss to represent China at a dance competition in Ukraine - and went on to win. Having danced to victory by proving herself the most talented artist in a very popular contest on Chinese television when she was 17, Tianjiao Zhang now appears with a range of professional dance troupes and gives ballet lessons to children.

This short film captures Tianjiao Zhang's route into professional dance: Lights, camera, action! [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j2scKCCJVA0 ]
