RALEIGH, N.C.—Ms. Lynn Green left uplifted and inspired after Shen Yun Performing Arts’ matinee on Jan. 20 at the Progress Energy Center for Performing Arts.
“Incredible, I’m very glad I came,” said Ms. Green, a retired clinical social worker and college professor from Fayetteville, N.C.
Ms. Green said earlier that day she attended a funeral, and was debating whether she should still attend the performance.
“It was a very good respite for us after losing a very dear friend. We needed this right now,” Ms. Green said. “It was just absolutely beautiful.”
She said she was a little late, and almost did not attend. She was glad she did. “I have no regrets, absolutely no regrets. It was just incredible,” Ms. Green said.
Ms. Green enjoyed the narrative dances. “Shen Yun’s mini-drama pieces draw upon stories and legends that span China’s history from the Yellow Emperor and through the Tang and Song dynasties and all the way to the modern day,” according to the Shen Yun website.
“The dancers were very graceful, athletic, acrobatic, and just spiritual,” Ms. Green said.
