"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
“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
“Shen Yun isn’t just a beautiful performance—it is a chance for people around the world to experience the essence of Chinese civilization. Shen Yun is a flawless presentation of the inner beauty of Chinese culture.”
Wenzhuo Hou  Ottawa-based Chinese scholar
“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
“A beautiful show... fantastic! If you ever get a chance to see it, you should.”
Joy Behar  Co-host of ABC’s The View
“Shen Yun demonstrates the highest realm in art and inspires the performing arts world… Their passion is really touching. The show was excellent, the content rich, the stage effects were amazing.”
Chi Cao  Lead role in Mao's Last Dancer, principal dancer for Birmingham Royal Ballet
“I probably have reviewed over three to four thousand shows, which still cannot compare to what I saw tonight. I give this production Five Stars, that’s the top! The best word to use is ‘mind-blowing’!”
Richard Connema  Talkin’ Broadway
