March 11, 2018

“I’m so inspired, so impressed, so touched deep in my heart and my soul for what I saw. It was my first time, and to see the heart and soul of China [from 5,000] years come alive here in Las Vegas was quite inspiring.”

“[Shen Yun dancers are] absolutely the best in the world. … [Shen Yun] has given us, and given the world an amazing, emotional, and inspiring experience.”

“I was a professional musician in my younger years, and I played percussion in a symphony orchestra. When I saw the gong, the timpani, and all the familiar instruments, it was quite a homecoming for me.”

“To have so many musicians understand both the Eastern and the Western feeling of the music was quite thrilling. They did a fantastic job, and the director was totally on top of it.”

“The [dancer] in ‘Devotion’—her extension was incredible. The back extension, the leg extension, the rotation—absolute perfection. I just had chills.”

“They brought you to connect emotionally with what has happened over [5,000] years. It made us feel connected to China, to the culture, to the history, and to the dedication that they have put into moving heaven. Amazing!”

“[It’s] thrilling and life-changing. … I will try and remember the feeling that [the performers] conveyed and shared with us to make us feel the way we do today.”
