SAN FRANCISCO—Summerlynn Rivera and her daughter Cheyenne Danner, both residents of San Francisco, came to Saturday's 'Spectacular' on its final day, Jan. 26 at the Orpheum Theatre. Both Rivera and Danner are dancers and heard about the Spectacular at a recent ethnic dance festival.
Danner was very impressed with the show, and remarked "Oh my gosh, I have never seen anything like it, I thought it was just fantastic."
Danner has a deep appreciation for dance and is herself an ethnic dancer, studying a cultural dance from the south called Appalachian Clogging.
Comparing her style of dance with traditional Chinese dance, she said, "My dance is very different, more hillbilly. This is more classical, I think it is wonderful. I would like to do something like this in the future, it is very unique."
Danner is very proud of her mother who is a professional Flamenco dancer in San Francisco. Rivera loves to see ethnic cultures, and feels the importance of keeping traditional heritages alive.
"As a dancer, what I appreciated the most was the synchronization of the dancers. I found the performances very dramatic", Rivera said and added, "my favorite acts were the Victory Drums and the Mongolian Bowl Dance because it is not very common to see Mongolian performances."
The last Spectacular performance in San Francisco was this evening at 8:00 p.m. at the Orpheum Theatre.
Starting on Jan. 30, the NTDTV Chinese New Year Splendor will play for 15 shows at Radio City Music Hall in New York City.
