‘The World Needs More of Shen Yun,’ Says Choreographer

January 13, 2018

“I absolutely loved it. I was mesmerized. As a dancer and choreographer, I was just taken away by the grace, the beauty, the culture and also the technique was just flawless. It was amazing and I love folklore and it was a beautiful blend of culture … history, spirituality, it’s all there. I really don’t see what’s missing here. I love it.”

“[The choreography] was so unpredictable. I mean that the shapes and the precision and the flawlessness, the spatial awareness, it was just amazing. I was like, I want to do this.”

“I would, that’s something to look up to [Shen Yun dancers], that’s like, I can’t even, I don’t know how the principal dancer, her leg just goes right behind her head and she just looks like it’s OK. Like that’s not a thing, and it’s so graceful and beautiful, and at the same time, she’s telling a story. They are all telling a story and the musicians, the singer. I mean it’s all there, I really really loved it.”

“Powerful, she’s powerful [soprano], and I was reading the [lyrics], it was translated so like, I felt what she was saying. So the translation really read well with how powerful she was … She was amazing.”

“I really related to it about how right now we are in a chaotic world and she [soprano] was talking about peace, peace and bringing our morals back to tolerance and acceptance. And I think that this cultural exchange is just what we need.”

“The takeaways besides, as a dancer I can’t help, but the artistry, the amount of artistry is, I would come back again and again. I don’t think you can take it all in one time, right? I’m very impressed.”

“It shows how much beauty matters, and grace and love. I felt all of that.”

“The world needs more of Shen Yun, really. It needs more of that feeling of that experience because I felt it. Every single piece I felt something. It was great.”
