Shen Yun ‘A Magnificient Statement About the Human Spirit,’ Says VP of Interfaith Council

“The overall impression is that it’s really a magnificent statement about the human spirit, about the human body. And I was glad that my granddaughter, who is a dancer, who is 9 years old and studying dance, had the opportunity to see it. She was just blown away.”

“She can learn a lot. There’s the gestalt to the whole thing, and I think that was imprinted on her.”

“I enjoyed it for those reasons, and the coming together of the spirit and the physical. … I think that’s very important for young people to see, and to witness. It actually bears witness to human possibilities—the whole performance.”

“I found it uplifting. … And I feel it’s a statement about the human spirit, and that’s the real thing. We need to awaken more to that.”
