Dance Teacher Loved the Shen Yun Dancers’ Technique

“The costuming is just gorgeous, that fabric, I don’t know how they are able to find such nice fabrics. … The way the women used the silks, their sleeves and all the control to flip them back on themselves was really beautiful to see the control they had with their costumes and how they incorporated that into the dance.”

“It’s just beautiful and it’s really nice to see male dancers. It’s really rare to see a full company that enjoys what they are doing so much.”

“I love the way they are doing the twirls. … the way they are spotting the floor over and over again, the spinning, the tall shoes. The twirling, with the one arm over the other. … The dancers are able to do it so quickly, they’re spinning and then they’ve got the next thing that they are doing and they are not dizzy at all and it’s just really wonderful.”

“It’s great to see how the choreography changes too for each period.”
