Mayor of Downey: ‘The dancing is incredible’

April 23, 2018

“It’s a great [performance]. I’m really enjoying it. The dancing is incredible, [especially] the Mongolian [vignette, ‘Lofty Spirits on the Grasslands’]. They were very interesting with the use of the chopsticks and the percussionists’ sounds.”

“I don’t know how the dancers are doing some of the stuff they are doing.”

“The music gets you involved in what’s going on with the [performance], and it’s really good music.”

“I think they’re doing a good job with [reviving traditional Chinese culture]. It’s something that as we progress forward, we don’t want to lose the customs of our past, especially here in America, as well as in China. So, they’re doing a good job.”

“[Shen Yun] is very positive [for humanity].”

“I’m looking forward to seeing the second half.”
