Shen Yun’s Positive Messages Are ‘Absolutely Relevant to Everyone’s Lives’

January 8, 2017

“The music is beautiful, it’s beautiful. It’s very lively and goofy at times, very sad and very moving [other times]. I loved it. Very dynamic!”


“When they were dancing with the handkerchiefs, it’s just incredible—timing and pacing, twirling and making a boomerang with the handkerchiefs—the coordination! How do you get a handkerchief to come back to you like a boomerang? It’s incredible.”


“I think it’s always wonderful to … be more mindful of a greater purpose like compassion and our fellow humans rather than just on money, wealth, and power. Especially as a social legal psychologist, my goal is to make this world more just and an equitable world, so a lot of those are definitely positive messages.

“I think it’s absolutely relevant to everyone’s lives and I think it’s something we forget about when you get caught up in the day-to-day grind of work.”
