Shen Yun Dancers’ Emotion ‘Really Inspiring,’ Says Dancer

“I think it was absolutely beautiful. Very, very graceful. The Chinese dancing techniques were amazing.”

“I’ve heard a lot about [Shen Yun]. We’re actually from Toronto; everyone talks about it in Toronto, so we wanted to come and see it.”

“I think it’s really, really inspiring.”

“In terms of technique … training is really, really important and it was really shown on the stage how well-trained these dancers are. So it inspires me to train. But also, just how committed they are to the emotion that they have while they are dancing is really, really inspiring. Especially because they are dancing about their culture back home. … It just gets really inspiring to see them do that in a place where they’re away from home.”

“[I will tell my friends] they should definitely come see it, especially my friends who are dancers. They should definitely come see it. It was absolutely amazing.”
