Shen Yun, ‘Giving a Blessing to Mankind’

February 21, 2018

“One can’t help but just be overwhelmed, it’s just so beautiful. Everything’s choreographed so beautifully. The outfits are marvelous. The athletes, the dancers, musicians are all top of the line. It’s a great joy to be able to just watch them perform.”

“[The dancers are] always happy, always appearing to enjoy what they’re doing greatly. That’s very uplifting.”

“I paid close attention to [the lyrics]. I understand the plight of the Chinese people. I am still in contact with a missionary who used to live in China and was expelled in 1948, and she had lived there for about 20-25 years, and she kept us well informed.”

“It just reaches into your soul, and makes you feel like it’s a wonderful experience.”

“They’re giving a blessing to mankind. I appreciate that there has been a great deal of hard work and difficulties that had to be overcome in order to do what they’re doing tonight.”

“I want to compliment those young people who are performing. I know that they’ve spent years and years getting to the level of skill and artistry that they have, and it’s worth it from me and my seat here. I know that they don’t know how I feel, but it’s just like a worshipful experience.”

“Anyone who can and has the opportunity, I would certainly recommend it. I wish I had seen this fifteen or twenty years ago.”
