‘What they do is pure beauty,’ Artist Says of Shen Yun

“It’s absolutely wonderful. Very beautiful performance, very professional actors, and it’s very inspiring. … I was very happy to see it. It’s a rare beauty.”

 

“It’s hard to describe in words because it’s only pure emotion. [The dancers] are as gentle and light as air. It’s very beautiful. The costumes and the moves, absolutely.”

 

“It’s a feeling of being in Eden’s Garden. It’s like you’re in heaven. They give you this feeling; they give you the feeling of heaven. … I was feeling that was a place I was looking for.”

 

“Maybe one day I’m going to [create] my own dances; it’s just like an impulse to find something of your own. So [Shen Yun] gives you that push to do something—to create, to paint, to breathe. That’s what the arts are meant for.”

 

“I feel very grateful and I wish they could do more performances. It’s beautiful. Really what they do is pure beauty.”

 

“This is the very perfection they bring, to show the beauty of the nation, culture, and of the hearts of the dancers.”
