Shen Yun Performance leaves Audience Members In Awe

2019-03-12 16:22
NEW YORK—Shen Yun Performing Arts left audience members in awe at Lincoln Center in New York, on March 7, as it continued its mission to revive China’s traditional divinely inspired culture. "It’s fantastic," Investment Banker Bruce McCarthy said. "The choreography, the integration between the screen and the real live dancers is fantastic, the costumes are terrific, it’s very enjoyable." Through a combination of Chinese classical dance, live orchestra music, and 3-D animated art, McCarthy received a message of tolerance, diversity, and divinity. "We all need to be more tolerant of each other," he said. "There probably is a greater good out there, and maybe it is in the form of a god, and at the very least we all should be more welcoming and tolerant of different perspectives and views." The high skill of the dancers and the quality of the production made a positive impression on those who witnessed the performance. "I can't believe the athleticism that I’m witnessing, the grace, the beauty [and] the costumes are spectacular. It’s really a world-class performance," McCarthy said. A business owner could not stop praising the show's movements. "What I enjoyed most was the precision dancing, it was just sensational," said Mark Tealve, founder of Franklin Stainless Steel. "Their bodies are made of rubber. The way they carried on [was] beautiful. Tealve loved everything about Shen Yun. "I wish that I could dance that way, it would be wonderful," he said. "Really, I loved it and I’m going to learn Chinese, to learn more ... this was out of this world, I was in awe." According to Shen Yun’s website, the Chinese Communist Party fears the freedom of expression the performing arts company has in the west. Being an atheist regime, the CCP does not allow Shen Yun to perform in China. "It’s a shame," Sales Director Joe Heaney said. "Everybody should be able to see the show, it was fantastic." Heaney believes Shen Yun's performances make an important contribution to the community. I think it’s important," he said. "In this political climate, I think it’s very important to be a voice of reason." "I thought it was great, exactly like my grandpa said, their movement was fantastic, the dancing was great," he added. "I think he learned a couple of moves tonight." NTD News, New York.
