Director: Shen Yun Is ‘A Great Opportunity to Learn and Be Inspired’

April 23, 2017

“It’s a great opportunity to learn and be inspired by another culture and by these beautiful dancers.” 

“I didn’t realize that Chinese culture has such depth of art. I knew it intuitively, but to see it in person is really beautiful — the artistry, the discipline of the dancers.”

“My daughter has not been exposed to the Chinese culture, so for her to sit there and learn about the Chinese history and culture while enjoying the dance was absolutely beautiful.” 

“It’s very spiritual. It calls to some part of my inner heart that makes me feel peaceful, and appreciate the beauty of it. We don’t often get that very much out of our own culture nowadays.”

“[The dancers] are stunning, so elegant, and disciplined.”

“It’s nice to see … some funny parts too. That’s really great.” 

“[The tenor] is amazing. He has a beautiful voice, and I like the words [projected behind him].”

“I did not realize that there was going to be a live orchestra, so the fact that we’re seeing live orchestra and the dancers together, along with the graphic artistry behind it – it all came together beautifully.”

“I don’t know how to describe [the backdrop], but it … almost made you feel [the dancers] were jumping in and out of the graphics scenes on the stage.”

“I’m really glad that I came to [see Shen Yun], and that I would not want anyone to miss [it].”
