Texas Theatergoer Resonates With the Spirituality at Shen Yun

“I had to stop myself from crying a few times, because it was so beautiful, especially about when she sang the opera song about how people are free and you can’t see Shen Yun in China. It just broke my heart.”

“Giving tribute to the divine and the Buddha, and just the beauty of the spirituality and the magnificent dancing, and their beautiful faces—their spirits—it really moved me.”

“The history of China is so beautiful. How would anyone rob the beauty that you have and turn it into communism? I pray that it would go back to this.”

“To me, just the meditation. I meditate every day. To me, that’s the deepest way to know the divine in your soul and your heart.”

“I think they’re [dancers] amazing. So talented and just so focused in their artistry, perfection … obviously, they must be very blessed, and that they’re gifted, and talented and worked very, very hard to do what they do—I really appreciate it. You blend that with the spiritual that makes it even more beautiful.”
