ballet -- Chinese style

See Boston Globe's Big Picture photos of China's 60th aniversary celebration here. There's plenty of photos with people marching in unison.

What happened 60 years ago? From Wikipedia:

After its victory in the Chinese Civil War, the Communist Party of China (CCP) led by Mao Zedong gained control of most of Mainland China. On 1 October 1949, they established the People's Republic of China as a Socialist State headed by a "Democratic Dictatorship" with the CCP as the only legal political party.
