Camille Levert, the video maker featured on Danwei TV Choice Cuts several weeks ago, has posted a video of a marathon tango sesssion outside the Forbidden City in Beijing. The dancing is Beijing style, i.e. next to a busy street and using a small boombox for sound.

You can find it on her photo and video blog Camillenligne.com. She also blogs in French at Camille en Chine.

Other foreigner-made China blog videos worth noting:

- Ron Sims, is a black American guy living in Fuzhou who is not offended by Darlie toothpaste (formerly Darkie, still known as Black Man 黑人牙膏 in Chinese). He has been producing a podcast series about his life in China: Ill World.

- Chinesepod.com, the people who make Chinese lesson podcasts in Shanghai, have at least one video podcast of a Chinese lesson available: Chinese Video Hotpot.
