Huang Guorong believes that Divine Performing Arts will surely make a deep impression on those who are not familiar with Chinese culture and will help them learn more about different aspects of Chinese culture such as music, dance, and martial arts. He said, "I think that the DPA performance is done quite well. They should travel all over the world and have more people learn our pure Chinese culture."

He said he was quite moved by some segments, including the understanding of Buddha Fa principles and historic legends. Speaking of the two dances about Falun Gong, he said, "Even when persecuted, [the practitioners] persevered in their strong faith. This kind of devotion is extremely touching."
Head of Kaoshsiung Arts Center: Divine Performing Arts Introduces a Pure and Righteous Culture to Modern Society
