Board Chairman Dot and Basil Haymann See Shen Yun for Third Time

January 4, 2014

DALLAS—Dot and Basil Haymann have seen Shen Yun Performing Arts three years in a row—they plan to make it an annual event.

“What we did this time is we brought our children and our grandchildren together with us to enjoy the show together, and [it] really has been an absolute pleasure,” said Mr. Haymann at the Winspear Opera House in Dallas, Jan. 3. “And it seems to get better every year,”

Mr. Haymann, a successful businessman of over 40 years, is on the Board of Directors of Probe Mines, a precious metal exploration company.

Natives of South Africa, Mr. and Mrs. Haymann have developed many successful diamond companies and have had a successful career in manufacturing shade structures as well. After selling his 3-D laser dental technology company to a Fortune 500 company, Mr. Haymann co-founded, and still serves on, the boards of two shade companies with Mrs. Haymann.

“This is our third visit and we’ve enjoyed every single show that we’ve come to,” Mrs. Haymann said.

The New York-based Shen Yun puts on an all-new performance every year, reviving 5,000 years of Chinese civilization through music and dance.

Mrs. Haymann said Shen Yun was a beautiful tribute to the culture, and wanted to thank the artists.

“I think the artists and the performers do an incredible job,” Mrs. Haymann said. “It’s an amazing [performance].”

“It’s really an absolute pleasure and a must to come and see,” Mr. Haymann added.
