On January 17, the day before their final exams, 26 students in a fourth-grade class at Qing Ying Foreign Language School put on a performance to thank the school's teachers for their hard work. Many of the students did not know why they were taking time away from preparing for their final exams to perform, but they believed that all the teachers in the primary school with a student population of over 3000 would be in the audience, including the school's principal, and that this performance was "very important."

With an hour for makeup and another hour for the dress rehearsal, they crowded together backstage, awaiting the signal to step out in front of the lights.
