Ballet Teacher on Shen Yun: ‘It was super creative and brilliant’

“It was super creative and brilliant. I was just excited to see the different types of culture and dance.”

“[The dancers] just blow my mind. Very elegant and graceful and they are very professional and dance with ease.”

“I loved the animated backdrops. I thought that was so neat. I don’t think I’ve been to a show where it combines the animation with the physical dance before and it was very unexpected. I loved it.”

“I thought the handkerchief dance was pretty amazing. As a whole, I love how they brought in hilarity with it. It wasn’t just serious dancing. It was a lot of fun too and humorous. The monks, they were great and I love how they touched on serious subjects as well. I got cold chills so many times because it’s just brilliant.”

“I love how they had a touch of Heaven and brought God into the performance. I’m a very spiritual person and that touched me a lot, and with the tenor singing, I wanted to cry. It was so good.”

“The tenor’s voice is so magnificent. And what he’s singing about… It really touched me. … How we should basically search for God and his people are waiting for his deliverance and not to get caught up in worldliness and that’s great.”

“I was deeply moved.”
