Shen Yun Is Perfect For All Ages, Says Performer

“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.”
