Shen Yun Like a History Lesson That’s Entertaining and Fun, Says Dance Show Producer

January 4, 2018

“I was born and raised in Canada but I live in Vietnam now. So it was nice that I came here to visit and Shen Yun was performing. … The fact that I’m here for the holidays and I was able to catch the show this year, I’m really, really happy about it. It was so good!”

“I teach dance in Vietnam. I have my own dance school. I’m a director of a dance company, and a dance producer of shows as well. I see the link between Vietnamese dance and Chinese dance, and with what I saw today, it was really, really cool.”

“Talking about the dancers, their movement, their technique, … you see their arms, you see their feet, you see their fingers, everything was just on point, so beautiful. I was blown away. And even when the show was done, I sat there staring at the stage waiting for the curtain to come up one more time. Maybe there was a surprise but I guess I’ll have to come again.”

“[The female dancers were] amazing, amazing. [Referring to difficult dance movements performed during the ‘Soaring Handkerchiefs’ dance,] they’re spinning the handkerchiefs and smiling and performing. The audience was in awe. I was in awe…I’ve seen a lot of shows. This is on my top.”

“The male dancers were so masculine and so strong, and performed their characters so well.”

“The storytelling was really good. … The fact that we had the two hosts come out who helped explain, that was really good on the production side as well as the acting. … It was very clear who the characters were. I thought it was really, really well done.”

“It was like a history lesson but they made it interesting, entertaining, and fun.”

“[To Shen Yun,] please come to Vietnam. Please. I’ll be there. And I really encourage people to come and see the show. Not just because it’s a dance show or a performance, but you really learn something. You have fun. It’s amazing. And thank you, Shen Yun.”
