To celebrate Chinese New Year, a group of top singing and dancing talents from China performed at the O2 centre in London. It's a rare chance for British audiences to experience Chinese culture through music and dance.

Helen from BBC Learning English was there to meet one of the stars of the show, Mr Guoqing Cai.
