The participating teachers and students were highly motivated and made a thorough training plan, overcoming all kinds of difficulties, seizing the rest time at noon and in the evening every day, training hard with quality and quantity guaranteed, devoting themselves to the preparation of the Festival with full enthusiasm.

"Spirit of Steel"
USTB responds to the appeal of the Organizing Committee actively, insists on educating students and educating people with aesthetics and culture, and regards the Student Art Troupe as an important practical platform to carry out aesthetic education activities. In the meantime, USTB combines art courses, art clubs, and campus cultural construction, and carries out a large number of campus art and culture exhibition activities in order to create an artistic and cultural atmosphere and improve students' artistic cultivation and comprehensive quality. Taking this Festival as an opportunity, USTB will further consolidate the achievements of aesthetic education, improve the professional standard of the Troupe, build a better aesthetic education practice platform, and enhance artistic appreciation ability and creativity.
