LOS ANGELESóDivine Performing Arts' Chinese New Year Spectacular in Los Angeles opened on Friday, Jan. 18 at the Nokia Theater LA Live.
"It's brilliant for the Chinese to bring here and show what their history is all about," said professional dancer Jodie Rerucha, from Rolling Hills. "The water nymphs was amazing, it still sticks in my head."
"My aunt (Sallie Whelan) and uncle (Alex Ruiz) were professional ballet dancers and they would be amazed and proud of this Chinese dance and culture."
Rerucha also said "To my friends, come and see this show."
Attendee Ryan McDonald from Woodland Hills, said during intermission, "Enjoying it very much. It's lovely, it's a feast for the eyes and the ears."
Erica Schiele, a writer, actress, and producer from St. Louis, Missouri, said, "I love the show, it's bright, witty, colorful, it spruces my imagination. It inspires me by the magic it brings."
"The meaning behind the dance takes me to a lovely realm. Absolutely, I would recommend the show to my friends and children," added Schiele.
There are three more Divine Performing Arts shows left at Nokia Theater LA Live, two on Saturday Jan. 19 and one on Sunday, Jan. 20.
The Chinese Spectacular shows will go next to Las Vegas on Jan. 21 and then to San Francisco's Orpheum Theater for seven shows starting on Jan. 23 at 2:00 p.m.
