Shen Yun is ‘Magnifique’, Says Former French Ballerina

“It’s [Shen Yun performance] beautiful, really good. Lots of working hard, those young people. They [dancers] certainly practice years and years and years to accomplish such a feat.”

“At the same time they are really in their dance mentally. … Those young people over there, they are the dance. So I find this beautiful.”

“I did some dance too, classical ballet, a long time ago. … I did some shows in France.”

“The costumes are absolutely beautiful, very feminine and masculine, and at the same time they are light, they flow with the action of the body, so I love that. It’s a beautiful thing.”

“I love all of [the stories] because they are very different and the meaning is different, so I love all of them … and I love the music.”

“It’s wonderful to follow the meaning of what they’re doing. … It was pleasing me, it was joyful, I liked it.”

“I would say it was magnifique. Go to see it. I have a granddaughter, she’s a professor of dance. She’s in New York right now. We will tell her to go to see [Shen Yun].”
