Artist Struck By the History of China and Beautiful Dances of Shen Yun

“It is very beautiful, and I was struck by the history of China, the ancient, beautiful dances and how it brought to [us] what is happening now in China — the Cultural Revolution and the difficulties that people are having today — and I enjoyed seeing that… They couldn’t show that in China, but it is New York-based, and I am enjoying it very much.” 
 

“The costuming and the dancing — it is just beautiful, fabulous. Very beautiful.” 
 

“[The dancers] do spectacularly. They are very well trained. They do a very beautiful job. The movements are wonderful. They are precise and elegant.”
 

“[The orchestra’s coordination with the dancers] is very, very wonderful, the way they coordinated that.”
