To complete the performance tasks perfectly, all departments made concerted efforts in costume selection, show arrangement, audio and background video production, etc. Zhou Hui, a teacher of School of Music and Dance, was invited to serve as the instructor who provided one-month training for students of all ethnic groups selected from the etiquette team, the national flag class and various schools. On the evening of the performance, the students wore different national costumes and showed to the audience from all over the world the colorful national culture and the high spirit of SCUN students.
