CHARLOTTE, N.C.—Tony Marquart attended Shen Yun Performing Arts at the Knight Theater on Jan. 27. Shen Yun was “just beautiful,” Mr. Marquart said. “The harmony, the grace, and the agility of the people—it was just beautiful.”
Based in New York, Shen Yun presents 5,000 years of traditional Chinese culture through classical Chinese dance and music.
Mr. Marquart was not sure what to expect before attending, as this was his first time seeing Shen Yun.
“It exceeded—more than exceeded—my expectations,” he said. “It was beautiful.” Mr. Marquart is retired after working for the government and now enjoys leisure and travel.
A group of friends attended Shen Yun on Jan. 26, on recommendations from Dennis Savane, a lawyer, who did not want to miss out on seeing the performance.
Mr. Savane’s daughters were adopted from China and next time he intends to bring his girls to see Shen Yun. “It’s part of their culture—I want them to see it,” he said.
Dr. John Rowe said that Shen Yun was spectacular. Dr. Rowe is a psychotherapist with over 20 years of experience, and specializes in men’s issues, relationship issues, mid-life transitions, and dream-work as a pathway to healing and wholeness.
Mr. Savane thought that Shen Yun’s digital backdrops were spectacular. “The choreography was magnificent—I thought it was excellent,” he said.
Mrs. Sara Campbell, an attorney, said that Shen Yun is “totally worth it” and beautiful.
