Everyone was stunned by the performance. People in the audience yelled, ‘It’s great!'” he said.

Mr. Huang stressed that it is distinguished and meaningful that Shen Yun can represent the Chinese culture on stage and carry forward the 5,000 years of the Chinese traditional culture. “Shen Yun Performing Arts is actually speaking up for the Chinese culture. It awakens human nature through the Chinese culture and rebuilds the values of our traditional ethical morality.”
