General Manager Learns About Ancient Chinese Culture at Shen Yun

May 3, 2018

“It really is awesome. You know, I am enjoying the culture and learning about the past. And I can feel the warmth and the sincerity of the performers and performances.”

“The piece that most moved me was the handkerchief [dance]. It was joyful. … It felt like spring and life is coming again. It was beautiful.”

“The artists, you can feel it, that they believe what they are performing. They believe it.”

“I learned a lot. … I didn’t realize before the Cultural Revolution, how this was all part of [China’s ancient] heritage and now [Shen Yun performances] try to save it. So that’s beautiful. It is nice.”
