Professor Says Shen Yun ‘Mind Blowingly Beautiful’

“It was amazing. It was such a concentration of talent and mind blowingly beautiful. The movements were so precise and artistic and the way that the dancers flowed with the music. It was enchanting. There’s no other way to describe it. It was really unbelievable, just a beautiful, beautiful thing to behold. I’ve never seen anything like it.”

 

“Both of us, we definitely enjoyed everything from the choreography, the costumes were colorful and radiant, beautiful, the music as well, it really kind of touched you, as far as the emotion behind it. And the stories, everything was very self-contained and short and episodic, so it made it really easy to follow through and very interesting. There’s such a rich depth of culture and tradition with it that I could really appreciate.”

 

“I think everything we saw shows a real dedication, because in order to do a performance like that, I know it takes years and years and years of amazing hard work and study and practice, and to see all of that come together, it really shows a real passion for the arts and for whatever one wants to dedicate their life to.

“To see that and to see so much passion in one place, and how it all comes together perfectly and precisely, it’s very impressive, it really, really is impressive.”

 

“It’s really neat to see that and to see how rich that culture and tradition is, and it’s definitely something to appreciate. I’ve never been to China, and I don’t know, it’s neat to see some of that culture come here to the United States. Absolutely, we’re very honored to see it.”
