Kansas City Ballet Dancer Says She is Blown Away by the Shen Yun Dancers

“I think I’ve seen their advertisements since I was twelve and I’ve never been able to go. This is the first year I’ve had any time off and it was amazing, mind-blowing. I absolutely loved it—by far the best performance I think I’ve seen in my life—it was fantastic.”

“It’s remarkable how fantastic together, how together [the dancers] are, and how much effort they put into it to make it look so effortless and easy, and like anyone could do it—from a dancer’s perspective I was impressed.”

“Seeing everyone hit the same line, and the same pose, and the same position, it’s mind-blowing, it’s beautiful. And I can understand how difficult that is and they achieved it.”

“You can see in the binoculars they are all smiling and they are all enjoying the time of their lives. This is everything to them and to see that was amazing. I know how much work that goes into it. … I wish I can tell each and every one of them that they were amazing because I know how hard it is and to see them do that together and make it so perfect and effortless it was amazing and beautiful.”
