Shen Yun Is Perfect For All Ages, Says Performer

January 17, 2018

“I am very amazed—the colors, the costumes, the dance. The combination of martial arts and dance is very impressive [martial arts and classical Chinese dance are distinct art forms both rooted in ancient Chinese culture, with overlapping stances and postures; they differ in that one is intended for battle while the other is a means of expression and entertainment]. The big screen [is impressive] too.”

“My little girl saw [an advertisement for] this on TV. She said, ‘Oh Daddy, I want to see that, I want to see that.’ She has school tomorrow morning [and she’s tired] but she liked it. It put her in a different zone of dance and music. It was good to bring my daughter to see and to know more about this [traditional Chinese] culture.”

“[Shen Yun] is perfect for all ages. My little girl likes it, my girlfriend likes it, and I like it. It was a good night. We had a very good night.”

“They have so much color and dance and movements that we just forget the music, but when they start the [next] act, I hear the music and the [orchestral] instruments and I like it.”

“[I would tell my friends to] go get some tickets. It’s a great time and a great night for young children too. … For the eyes and ears, it’s incredible.”
