In Sacramento, audience members marvel at the Shen Yun Performing Arts’ artistry. “I loved the combination of the spirituality with the music, the dancing and the colors, the visuals. I mean just everything together. Wow! It was like a gourmet meal with different ingredients blended together and you get this unbelievable entree. It was great,” said Steve Barkley, a comedian. “I love it. I love the costume. It's very colorful,” said Angelica Urban, a real estate appraiser. “I love the twirling of the costumes. It's very beautiful and delicate the way they flow their arms. And you can tell they've been through a lot of classical Chinese dance training.” “I was especially struck by just how the ancient nature of some of the moves become the sort of the today's modern dance started from this thousands of years ago. They were very inspiring,” said Jeff Russell, Vice President Healthcare of Rudolph and Sletten. “I mean live theater, there's nothing like it,” said KC Gates, a physical therapist. “There’s nothing like supporting the energy and creativity of artists, and there's nothing like being here, nothing. The energy of the room, all of our collective energy, to absorb it to feed the dancers and the performers, it's special.” “I was amazed to see so many young people playing so well, incredibly well, really tight and the compositions were phenomenal,” said Ivan Najera, a guitarist and songwriter. “I was taken by the harpist and then the two stringed violin. I thought that was phenomenal, phenomenal.” “So the main impetus was I love dance,” said Julie Russell, founder of Elocution. “I love watching dance and I appreciate it. But also just the courage and the appreciation for the divine. The reverence and just the incredible hard work and…sacrifices that were made to be able to keep this culture alive, to resurrect it, is what I’m impressed with.” Audience members say Shen Yun is doing an important job of reviving traditional Chinese culture.
