Retired Physician: ‘This is an absolutely marvelous experience’

“This is an absolutely marvelous experience. I have never seen anything that is so colorful. One of the things that impresses me so much is the synchronicity of the dancers. Everybody dancing, at the same time, together, is really stunning. Just beautiful.”

“You get the energy from everybody [all the dancers]. You get the beauty of the colors, and the femininity of the women with the wonderful sashes. One of my favorite dances was the one with the shields [referring to the dance titled ‘Tang Dynasty Training Ground’], because everything is done in such amazing timing. The timing is so amazing from both the men and the women.”

“The storytelling is wonderful as well. It gives you a real sense of the people and the stories about their lives.”

“The fact that the Shen Yun [name] is referring to the sacredness, the beauty, of the divine beings dancing, that is amazing too. You get that sense of spirituality that is very special.”

“The backgrounds are stunning, the [animated] backgrounds that add to the dancers were just incredible.”

“[Shen Yun’s mission of] sharing that history of China, and doing it all over the world, is wonderful.”
