This week, Shen Yun Performing Arts completed the Florida leg of its 2015 world tour, with 22 performances in nine cities across the state.
The beauty and pageantry of a performance—the uplifting themes of story-based dances, gorgeous costumes and digital backdrops, an orchestra that blends East and West, the athleticism of the dancers, and the spirit of compassion—take audience members to another world, one that they often describe as magical.
This is a sample of audience members’ comments from the April 22 performance at the Kravis Center in West Palm Beach.
Don Moores and Rina Delaplane, radio host for the health show “Your Common Sense Coach,” were impressed by Shen Yun’s performance: “Absolutely magical—the art and discipline behind it,” Ms. Delaplane said. “It was fabulous. Amazing work, amazing work. I’m delighted, pleased. Everybody should come and see it.”
“It was just totally outstanding,” Mr. Moores said. They attended the April 22 performance in West Palm Beach.
Michael Bornstein, city manager of Lake Worth, Fla., attended the April 22 performance with his wife, Debra Bornstein. “I loved the visual—the colors and the movement—it’s phenomenal!” he said. “It’s very colorful, very vibrant, love the stories, and the music’s great, too. It’s very expressive, very upbeat.”
Mrs. Bornstein said: “The compassion really struck me. I really like the story they told about compassion. It was very touching,” she said of the dance The Power of Compassion.
“This is a very special evening for both of us,” said Leo Breault, who was accompanied by his wife, Linda, at the April 22 performance. “It’s marvelous,” he said of the performance. “The music has been terrific. The dancers are really exciting.”
“It was spectacular,” Mrs. Breault said. “This is far beyond what I expected. The choreography is amazing. The athleticism of the dancers—it’s unbelievable. The traditional dance is so meaningful. [It’s] what China used to be.”
