YUANLIN, Taiwan—“Wonderful! Wonderful! Shen Yun presents not only an artistic performance, but it also teaches people to follow a righteous path and perform good deeds.

"The beautiful classical Chinese music and dance illustrates the magnificent divine realms so vividly,” said Catholic nun, Sister Shi Dinghai.

Sister Dinghai attended Shen Yun Performing Arts International Company’s show held at Changhua County Yuanlin Performance Hall, on the evening of April 16.

"Thanks to my friend’s recommendation … I was told that Shen Yun was great before I came to the show this evening,” she said.

Every program was so overwhelming she said. She was touched by every scene. "In particular, the plum flowers performed by the dancers was very exquisite and beautiful and gave the audience a feeling of joy," the Sister said.

Amazed by the dance, sound effects, and dynamic backdrops, Sister Dinghai said that the performances by the solo vocalists made her feel very comfortable.

She stressed, "The touching dance and music made people feel the beauty of the world. I really admired the great unison of dancers’ movements, their strength and facial expressions. I can tell they have gone through a lot of training and practice."

Immersed in Shen Yun’s peaceful atmosphere, the nun said, "Shen Yun Performing Arts naturally spreads traditional Chinese culture to various places around the world, teaching people traditional values in the form of artistic performance. This is indeed a wonderful artistic experience."

New York-based Shen Yun Performing Arts has three touring companies that perform simultaneously around the world. For more information, visit ShenYunPerformingArts.org
