AUSTIN, Texas—Lorie Stuber, a local store owner, and Matt Miner had a moving experience seeing Shen Yun Performing Arts at the Long Center for the Performing Arts, in Austin Dec. 29.

Having years of dance experience, Ms. Stuber was impressed with the expressiveness and skill the Shen Yun dancers possessed.

“They make it look so effortless, but it’s so hard … I know from experience,” Ms. Stuber said. She noted the differences of the classical Chinese dance movements from the ballet she studied, down to the details in the toes.

New York-based Shen Yun performs classical Chinese dance and ethnic and folk dances from the many ethnic minorities across China. Through music and dance, Shen Yun revives 5,000 years of Chinese civilization.

“There’s a lot about China people don’t understand,” Mr. Miner said. For instance, many audience members were shocked to realize the traditional Chinese values Shen Yun is trying to revive are suppressed by the current Chinese regime.

“It’s very spiritual,” Ms. Stuber said of the culrure. “It’s wonderful, beautiful.”

“Very enlightening,” Mr. Miner said.

New York-based Shen Yun Performing Arts has four touring companies that perform simultaneously around the world. For more information, visit Shen Yun Performing Arts.
