Shen Yun ‘Mesmerized from the beginning to the end’

“I was struck by the spirit, really, and the hope … You know the usual things … the music was lovely, the dance was lovely, the choreography was lovely, the backdrop was lovely. Everything was lovely. But the spirit and the hope of the whole performance, to me is what gave it its lift off the ground, and made it different from any other [dance company] that I’ve seen thus far.”

“Frankly, when I go to ballet performances, I fall asleep by the intermission. That was not the case here. I was mesmerized from the beginning to the end. And I wished it had gone on all night. It was just fantastic to see.”
