Dance Director: Shen Yun Is the Art of Dance With Divine Beings

“Shen Yun is seemingly the art of dance with divine beings. It’s perfect and unique.” “Shen Yun’s dance is superb and well-known all over the world …. It’s the demonstration of the culture, the divinely inspired ancient culture featuring the harmony between human and nature.”
 

“Shen Yun performs the best category of the dance, and what it demonstrates is the highest level of art. So I was determined to see it.”
 

“Shen Yun’s dancing skills are perfect, and what it performs is an artistic conception.”
 

“Seeing Shen Yun is my annual rendezvous …. I seldom go overseas, and my annual overseas trip is for seeing Shen Yun.”
 

“Its level is much higher than that of Tibetan dances I have seen in other performances—Shen Yun performers carry their drums on their backs, and strike the drums with the sticks in their two hands at the same time. So, it doubles the sound. It’s really superb and overwhelming.”
 

“My expression of Shen Yun is its artistic conception of the harmony between human and nature, in which performers seemingly danced with divine beings seamlessly. It’s a kind of perfection.”
 

“In fact, Falun Gong is very peaceful—they are simply a peaceful cultivation group.”
 

“I think anyone [who] conforms to Falun Gong’s principles of ‘Truthfulness, Compassion and Tolerance’ is a good person; any society [that] conforms to the principles of ‘Truthfulness, Compassion and Tolerance’ is a good society, and any country, [which] conforms to the ‘Truthfulness, Compassion and Tolerance’ is a good country.”
 

“Shen Yun’s costumes are rich in vibrant colors. Its designers are truly remarkable …. In terms of the costumes’ colors and the designs, they differ every year, and are very colorful and enjoyable.”
