Shen Yun: ‘We really did travel through 5,000 years of history’

“I really liked it, I’ve seen it four years ago. I think it’s really good—beautiful colors, beautiful dances—it looks like the artists are flying. I really think it’s beautiful, I’ve done classical ballet in the past. I really found it beautiful, very colorful, very diversified.”

“It is certainly important to have faith. It is important to have a certain spirituality and then to have faith in something so that we can eventually see a better world and share common values, and then to help each other in the name of some higher power.”

“We really did travel through 5,000 years of history. We saw several types of dances and several dances specific to particular historical periods in China.”

“[I’ve learned that] things are bigger than us, and then sometimes there are things that we can’t explain—then, it’s divine creation, it’s bigger than us sometimes.”
