Fashion designer Mr. Franklin was glad he came to watch the show. He expressed his admiration of the colorful and heavenly costumes and natural dance movements. He said that as a professional fashion designer, he would like to solute the designer of the DPA dancers' costumes. There was no fault to find in the materials. The colors were rich but coordinated, expressing not only the meaning of the program, but also giving the audience a quality experience.
Stained glass artist Ms. Monica Mader
Ms. Mader, a stained glass artist, was entranced by the Spectacular. She was
most interested in the traditional aspects of the dance, noting that she found
the "women's movements [to be] so beautifully choreographed and ultra
feminine." She also appreciated "the men [who] are more dynamic."
Ms. Mader said the performances were simply "beautiful." She would
like to bring her friends next time she sees the show.

It was beyond his expectation. He would like to watch it again next year. He was most touched when he saw the scene about the persecuted (Falun Gong practitioner) lifted to heaven. Ms. Thie loved everything in the show, especially the stories, because they showed compassion.
