Government Official: Shen Yun is a holistic performance

March 26, 2017

“It’s amazing so far. It’s great to see this world culture, such an old culture. The dancing is so smooth and graceful.” 

“I thought [the stories about China’s divinely-inspired culture] were very intriguing. I thought it was very special; I was excited to hear it. I wasn’t expecting it, but I think it creates an entire holistic performance.” 

“The music is amazing. It’s very relaxing – very soothing.”

“[The dancers] are so graceful, so talented. We’re really lucky to have them here in the city of Santa Barbara. I recommend this to everybody in the city … 

“…It brings us this world culture. You can see it here from our theater seats, in the middle of our little village, but you can experience being in a land very far away seeing these snowy hilltops and palaces and castles. The “Yellow Blossoms” was an amazing dance piece. The storytelling is great. The narration really tells you what’s happening. 

“It was really amazing, and I think everyone should have a chance to see this, and I hope they do.”
