EDMONTON, Canada—On a beautiful Spring evening, the internationally acclaimed Chinese dance and music company, Shen Yun Performing Arts, graced the stage at the Northern Alberta Jubilee Auditorium in Edmonton on Monday, April 5.

With every ticket sold, David Stasiewich, a former company owner of a manufacturer company in the oil and gas industry, and now retired, and his wife, Aline, felt very lucky to be amongst the audience to experience Shen Yun’s depiction of 5,000 years of Chinese traditional culture. This was their first time seeing Shen Yun.

Mr. Stasiewich said, “We love it. The colors, the dancing. … I loved the music. The music is different than I thought it would be. And the dancing, I just love it all.”

The New York-based Shen Yun company travels with a live orchestra which comprises of traditional Chinese and classical Western instruments. Mrs. Stasiewich said the music was “beautiful.”

She enjoyed Shen Yun so much that she wants to share it with her granddaughter, vowing to bring her next year. She concluded by saying that Shen Yun was “very colorful, very alive. It's a message of joy.”

‘I loved the dance’

Gosia Talamczuk, an investment manager for a large company, was also in the audience.

“I loved the dance," she said. "All performances, [the] synchronicity, and I loved the female parts—so colorful and so graceful. It was wonderful."

Shen Yun Performing Arts International Company will next perform two shows in Winnipeg, Canada, on April 7 and 8.
