‘It’s such a brilliant portrayal of dance, culture, colours’

January 9, 2017

“We’ve been wanting to come every year and we were finally able to make it this year. It’s been wonderful.”

“I feel absolutely fabulous because we’ve been waiting for this for a while and it’s such a brilliant portrayal of dance, culture, colours … amazing! So I think it’s been an absolutely wonderful experience and I’d love to be back here again next year if I could.”

“I think we communicate in different ways, through food, through language, through what we wear, and I think dance and music are two elements that help us communicate our culture at its peak. They allow us to communicate it the best because you can see it, you can hear it, you can feel it. And I was really able to understand or rather broaden my understanding about Chinese culture today.”

“What I have to take back is compassion, and giving to others, and bravery—to do something beyond yourself for others.”
