Shen Yun ‘Makes Me Think of My Ancestry,’ Mayor Says

March 18, 2018

“It is lovely. It is absolutely breathtaking. It is so enjoyable.”

“[The dancers] are magnificent. And the costumes are so colorful and bright and just beautiful.”

“The music is great. I was reading in the program about the instruments. There are some unique instruments. It is very nice.”

“I enjoy that it transforms us from one place to another—very uplifting, very genuine.”

“It is heavenly and it makes me think of my roots, of my ancestry.”

“It is very interesting to learn about the different dynasties. And I love how it is fluid and so connected. But everything is so different. Each performance is different—but it flows together nicely.”
