To the music of Celebrating World Falun Dafa Day, young practitioners from Minghui School showed up on stage. Hearing the music and applause, people outside went into the hall to look and take photos. While the practitioners demonstrated the Falun Gong exercises, a practitioner gave a short introduction. Many audience members stood up when the exercise music started and learned the first exercise following the practitioners on stage. After the demonstration, the audience applauded warmly.

As soon as the Minghui School presentation ended, someone ran backstage and asked to learn the exercises. Some of the spectators had praise for the practitioners, saying such things as, “Your dancing is good. The lion dance is excellent. How can I learn Falun Gong? Where do you have activities? Who can participate in the activities?” Some people said they would join group practice the following week.

Many people were interested in the folded paper lotus flowers attached to bookmarks that read “Falun Dafa is great! Truth-Compassion-Forbearance is great!” Some said they would place the flower in their car. After finding out that the flowers were folded by teachers and students at the Minghui School, some said they would treasure the flowers.
