Shen Yun Is ‘Positive and Enjoyable’

April 30, 2017

“I think it’s very interesting. I enjoy the attempt to try to express and communicate through dance, and [we’re] learning a little bit of history, which is good. I have my grandchildren and my son here with me … it’s fun to watch them absorb all of the excitement of the dance. It’s very well put together, it is enjoyable to watch, and the fact is the kids can make through, so that shows that it keeps their attention.” 

“It is very acrobatic, it is gymnastic, it is very athletic, but they do it in a way that is artistic. It’s a nice combination of athleticism and artistic skills, because they have to communicate their message, so I find that effort enjoyable to watch.” 

“The music is actually very soothing.” 

“I liked the Tibet number. I liked the Lao Zi [piece], where they were talking about the Dao. I studied a little bit of him, and I try to live by a lot things he said, especially the power of love … Courage is derived from the receipt of unconditional love. He used that kind of expression to define courage and strength. I find that very meaningful. It’s reflected in the show.”

“[It was] positive and enjoyable.”
