Shen Yun Has ‘Another Level of Dance,’ Says Ballet Dance Instructor

”I started dancing when I was 8, so dance has always been a very important part of my life … It is such a pleasure to see the skills of the dancers in the show. [It’s] just amazing what they can do, and it is really inspiring.”

 

“They were really flying in the show. It is just beautiful to see how, as humans, we can defy gravity.”

 

“[Shen Yun dancers are] very graceful. I really enjoy seeing [them] walking on the stage, and how they look like they are floating. So that was really special.”

 

 “It is really beautiful [to see the] use of all the different props and amazing costumes.  Above all, [with] the beautiful dancers [who are] really skilled, impeccable [classical Chinese dance is] just another level of dance.”

 

“I really enjoy the backdrops, and how that was animated and the figures were just popping out from the screen. So that was very clever, very creative.”

 

“[The coordination] is fabulous. Really, everything just comes together so beautifully – the integration on the highest level, the dance, the music, the scenery, the costumes, the props.”

 

 “The music was really … it grabs your soul. So [it’s] really beautiful music.”

 

“I need to get some [Shen Yun music] because I want to play [it] in my classes. It was so nice to have a live orchestra and  … the richness of the instruments [was] really a treat to the ears and to the soul.”

 

“ I was really taking it all in…”

 

 “[Shen Yun] is very impressive. I know I will always remember it, and I know my daughter will, as well.”

 

“Words are challenging, because shows like this are hard to describe with just words.”

 

“ I highly recommend people to see the show, to come and enjoy it. And it is something that really stays with you a while. Experiencing something on this level is really quite amazing.”
