“The Shen Yun performance was phenomenal—the skill level, the storytelling, the emotions, the music—it was something that blew me away. [It was] my first experience [seeing Shen Yun], but not my last.”
“I like the fact that there’s a lot of ancient wisdom and a lot of years and years of traditions and culture [in the performance]. We got to experience some of that, which is very beautiful. …
“There was the idea of respecting the elders, the importance of wisdom and knowledge—that was something that was celebrated.
“There was the idea of remaining strong in your values and your beliefs despite sometimes pressures that were discouraging … but they pushed through and continued to maintain strength in their own identity. That’s something very relevant today. People feel a lot of pressures not to believe in who they are or to conform with some other belief. And it’s important to be able to maintain that strength in your own values.”
“It’s a must-see.”
“The performers are amazing! They’re so graceful, so powerful, yet there’s this special way of moving with so much fluidity. It’s very beautiful to see that. They were phenomenal, they did a great job. The performers, the soloists, the singers, everyone did a great job.”
