SACRAMENTO, Calif.—Mr. Edgar Calderon, publisher of a bilingual newspaper in Sacramento, was part of the lively full house at the Sacramento Community Center Theater, Jan. 14, to see Shen Yun Performing Arts.
Mr. Calderon says he comes to New York-based Shen Yun year after year because it’s so entertaining, and recommends the production to his friends and clients.
Established in 2006, Shen Yun revives 5,000 years of Chinese civilization through the universal languages of music and dance, telling stories ranging through the dynasties up to the present day.
This year, Mr. Calderon said during intermission, there were many dances and stories that already stood out in his mind. He really enjoyed the Mongolian Chopsticks dance performed by the male dancers, showing the Mongolian tradition of showing hospitality, and a story about the mystical boy Ne Zha and the dragon.
“So far we are in the intermission and this is great,” Mr. Calderon said.
“I invite them to come but some other people were telling me that there were not enough tickets for tonight,” Mr. Calderon said.
Shen Yun Performing Arts is truly becoming more and more popular in Sacramento.
