PITTSBURGH—Sabrina Corradetti, who used to be a dancer herself, had high praise for the performance put on by Shen Yun Performing Arts dancers.
This was the second time Ms. Corradetti came to see a Shen Yun performance.
“It shows that the dancers definitely put a lot of time and effort into it, definitely a lot of practice and hard work,” Ms. Corradetti said after taking in the performance at the Benedum Center on Feb. 20.
“When you are watching the dancers up there, you can tell that there’s a lot of passion behind the dance,” Ms. Corradetti noted.
“They’re not only doing it for entertaining people, but they’re doing it because they feel it. There’s a real passion for it, for their culture.”
According to the Shen Yun website, the New York-based classical Chinese dance and music company was founded by a group of classical Chinese artists, with a mission to revive China’s divinely inspired culture.
“Sophisticated dance techniques, an orchestra joining instruments from both the East and West, beautiful costumes, and a stunning back drop—this is Shen Yun at first glance. But digging deeper, one discovers a sea of traditional Chinese culture,” reads the Shen Yun website.
Mark Follen, an architect, who accompanied Ms. Corradetti to the performance, said he found Shen Yun to be wonderful.
“You can see that a lot of effort went into this, and [it is] synchronized well,” said Mr. Follen.
