Pastor Impressed by Meaningful Themes in Shen Yun

“I really liked all the colors, and the choreography was exceptional. It was very meaningful how they had deep ideas and themes that are portrayed, but it was also very light and fun. It’s a good balance.”

“I think it’s beautiful how they are committed to non-violence and to a peaceful approach. I was touched by the scene [the dance story titled ‘Awakening’] where the soldier realized the damage that he caused by hurting other people and wanted to make a change in his life. I thought that was very powerful, and I think that’s something we all want—to find a path to where we can all get along in harmony.”

“I think the idea that divine beings have qualities we have lost or have fallen away from is something that makes a lot of sense to me, and by reconnecting with the divine we can regain that.”
