California State Assembly Member Inspired by Shen Yun

“It’s fabulous. It’s remarkable how such elegance and such beauty can be actually punished [in China]. It’s amazing to me that a government would find this to be threatening in any way. It’s a celebration and it’s fantastic for those of us who are able to witness it.”

“Very talented [dancers]. You could feel a very strong spirit of elegance [in the performance]. It’s quite enjoyable.”

“[Shen Yun’s music] is a very peaceful, very non-threatening, very relaxing, kind of worship tone to it. It’s really quite a joy to listen to, and to someone who has never heard it before, it’s fantastic.”

“It’s amazing that those of us in [United States], we don’t have much exposure to Shen Yun. So we’re very, very grateful that it was brought to our state in California and to this country, because we could certainly gain from that spiritual experiences that it offers.”

“It’s a very peaceful presentation and it reminds us to be focused on the things that make us better, instead of the things that threaten us.”

“It’s a very spiritual, very calming and a very motivating sense that you get just by watching, and participating, and listening.”

“It’s fantastic, it’s really a joy, and it’s very unique. It’s a presentation that you really have to witness in order to understand.”

“[Shen Yun is unique] because it mixes dance and music in a way that I think is very inspiring. You don’t even need to know the history to be able to feel something very, very powerful.”
