“Years of experience in show business and this is one of the best shows ever.”
Dick Walter  former impresario
“It’s the best that we’ve ever seen …

applicable to all of us across the world no matter
what our faith, no matter what our belief; I think there’s
a need all over the world for people to show greater love,
to show greater respect, to show kindness, and I think [Shen Yun is] accentuating that ... It’s something that you have to see. If you ever have an opportunity,
it’s something that you must see.”
Archie R. Snedegar  minister
“I have never experienced
anything quite like this …

the grace is unbelievable, the beauty,
the scenery, everything … It's a once in a lifetime experience that you will never experience again."
Bennie Dale  former VP of marketing
"One just sits there and thinks WOW.

I have to let the show envelope me and take nothing for granted ... After the show I felt cheerful because there was so much fun in watching Shen Yun. I can’t wait to see next year’s show ... [life is not easy], but when watching this show suddenly everything in life comes to a halt and one can rest comfortably for the first time in one’s life.
MORE > One just needs to open the eyes and let go ... The ease, with which the dancers float over the stage, and the discipline shown by the performers, is not easy to learn or describe. But, one will keep them in mind and achieve new energy that keeps one going in one’s life ... Actually, after the show one feels as if reborn and this show will help the person to charter a new life."
Martin Trippen  stage designer
"It’s a veritable feast for the eyes ...

One of the hardest things to do in theater anywhere
is to allow you to immerse yourself ...
[Shen Yun] allows you to almost forget where you are and totally absorb this journey, 5,000 years back into this glorious time of China’s golden period ... I was moved constantly by the quality, the dexterity, the
beautiful balance and poise of the performers ...
It actually is like a wonderful purification ... we all have something to learn from Shen Yun."
George Donikian  TV news anchor
“It’s absolutely beautiful. It was so inspiring,
I think I may have found some new
ideas for the next Avatar.
It is absolutely astonishing to see the colors. To see the discipline, the skill that these dancers execute these very difficult maneuvers. The choreography is beautiful and the graphics I thought were so interesting.”
Robert Stromberg  Academy Award-winning production designer for Avatar
“They’re top-notch, they’re stunning,
they’re articulate;
they’re everything that you could want to see in a dancer ... It’s absolutely breathtaking.”
Dana Von der Crone  ballerina
“I could soar like a bird. I just felt I could fly away on that beautiful background ... I should be more sophisticated after doing this
for 30 years, being a critic. I couldn’t help but
feel this was so special … I just feel like a child again ...
I don’t want to leave the theater … I have not seen anything like that in a theater.”
Rich Massabny  arts critic
“We are absolutely in love with Shen Yun ... This is going to become a family tradition
to come see it every year.”
Juan Carlos Perez  Hewlett Packard executive
