INDIANAPOLIS—Shen Yun Performing Arts continued to amaze audiences at Clowes Memorial Hall, Wednesday evening, Feb. 6. “I think it is fantastic!” said investment manager Kevin Hampton.
Classical Chinese dance is one way in which 5,000 years of Chinese culture has been passed down and retained.
Within classical Chinese dance lie China’s rich cultural traditions, which allow its movements to be deeply expressive, such that the personalities and feelings of characters can be portrayed with unparalleled clarity, the company’s website explains.
Mr. Hampton expressed his appreciation of the dance and said, “It is the enthusiasm and the spirit that they have, and even though I don’t understand Chinese you can see the feeling and the culture in it, how much they embrace it and enjoy it, and … the story and the history of China.”
He added, “I think it’s fantastic. This is the first time my wife and I have had an opportunity to come—it really is a nice show.”
Mr. Hampton said he would recommend his friends see Shen Yun. “I highly recommend it. If we don’t have a chance to see it here the next time it comes, if it is in an area that is close, maybe Chicago, or Saint Louis, you should definitely travel to see it!”
He was moved by the depth of the New York-based company’s performances and said, “I came away with, a deeper respect for the culture, the work that they put into it, and how this culture has grown over 5,000 years.”
