Retired Professor: Shen Yun ‘Phenomenal, Extraordinary, and Absolutely Beautiful’

“The show is phenomenal. Packing five thousand years into a show like that is extraordinary, and it’s beautiful.”

“I did find some connections in the music to western themes…What we see is the physical conflict between good and bad, between the poor and the rich. I mean those are international concepts and international themes.”

“The sensitivity of the dancers to the movement … even in the mock fighting, there was a gracefulness to it.”

“You have to go see it [Shen Yun performance] to appreciate it. The color, the movement, the cultural background and infrastructure to the dances and the music, it’s absolutely beautiful.”
