Philadelphia’s Mayor Welcomes Shen Yun to Philadelphia

“People care about it [Shen Yun] because it’s all sold out, so it’s bringing people into our downtown area, so people are seeing the show. It’s great for tourism, it’s great for our restaurants, it’s great for a lot of things. So we’re happy to have them back, we look forward to them coming back next year.”

 

“If it can’t be seen in China, then it needs to be seen around the world so it can penetrate Chinese people who are being blocked from seeing it.”

 

“I think they’re [dancers] tremendously talented and disciplined and they dance beautifully and they’re all young; I envy their youth and flexibility. It’s great to have them.”
