Former LA Rams Player Says Shen Yun Is Admirable and Enlightening

“I admire their [dancers’] strength, timing, and agility. I think they are so spot-on.”

“The dancing is synchronized. It’s like playing football.”

“[The entire production is] very well organized — a lot of planning; a lot of rehearsing; a lot of work.”

“The communists occupied their country for so long that they lost their culture. It’s absolutely good to bring the traditional culture back. Five thousand years old, right? Amazing!”

“[The performance is] interesting, admirable, and enlightening. My body hurts to see those moves. I admire them for what they can do.”
