Dancer: ‘I’ve never seen anything compared to Shen Yun’

“I’m very emotional right now. It was overwhelming. I’ve seen 21 Broadway performances and Boston performances over the last year but I’ve never seen anything compared to Shen Yun.”

 

“I was in the third row and I still had to do a double-take and ask, are they really moving? Is this real?  Are they actually flying? The moves were so intricate and I’ve been dancing for 17 years—I’ve never seen dancing like that. I’ve done Bollywood dancing, classical dancing, ballet for 11 years. I’ve never seen anything like that before.”

 

“I feel that there’s so much that people don’t know and seeing Shen Yun was a good introduction to how beautiful and how intricate China’s history is. I feel like I know a lot more than when I walked in through the door.”
