Human Rights Reporter: Shen Yun Is ‘Something That Everybody Needs to See’

“The performance was stunning. It was educational. It was inspiring, and I think it’s something that every American would benefit [and] our country would benefit by seeing it.”

“It opens the mind and the heart to people of other parts of the world, where spirituality takes on a more comprehensive aspect, I think. That really moved me.”

“I’d like to see it every day. [The dancers are] just fantastic. The dancers glide. It’s remarkable, the way they were able to dance the way I’ve never seen on a stage. Not any type of classical dancing was as superb as this group.”

“We’re all spiritual beings, and we all have a right to worship the way we like. And that was a disturbing part of the performance, of course, seeing how some people are persecuted for their beliefs [in China].”

“Unforgettable, I’d love to have the music in my home. It’s very inspiring.”

“[The live orchestra] was perfect. It was just perfect. It’s amazing that this is happening. It couldn’t be better. I would highly recommend it to everybody.”

“I’m going away with hope. I’m going away with a feeling of inspiration that I haven’t felt in a while.”

“It was something that I think everybody, especially in the United States, needs to see.”
