Shen Yun Is ‘Joy, Hope, Inspiration’

“The performers and the way their bodies moved was really inspiring to actually … When I go back home, [I’m] looking up more traditional Chinese dances to try to replicate it on the computer.”

“My favorite thing about the show was the different kinds of movements, and how the garments that the performers wore accentuated those movements.”

“It’s inspiring to see a different culture’s way of movement that you can incorporate into animation.”

“I love the handkerchief dance. That was just absolutely beautiful.”

“The whole spiritual aspect of it; there’s always hope even in the darkest places.”

“Joy, hope, inspiration.”
