“It was fantastic, absolutely amazing.”

“The costumes and everything were amazing. The dancers were just fantastic and the orchestra was amazing.”

“You didn’t actually need to hear people saying any words; it was done through the dance and through the music … it really showed [the stories] perfectly. I don’t think you needed anything else.”

“I like to know other people’s point of view and their beliefs—that was an interesting aspect of [Shen Yun].”

“It can never make things worse to think about spirituality in your life.”

“It is focusing on better principles in your life, trying to make you a better person, trying to make the world a better place, and on a personal level, how you can do that yourself—and that’s really, really important, because it starts with the personal, with ourself first.”
