Beauty and Goodness

“The artists brought to us beauty, which exists in this world, something that people still can share and will not forget,” he said..
“I know that such abilities as shown by the dancers can only be achieved through hard work and great effort.
“The individual scenes brought beauty and goodness to us, and we should take this very seriously,” he said.
From Past to Present
German journalist Axel Retz saw Shen Yun perform at Berlin's Deutsche Oper on March 16, 2019.
“At the high point of the show—smart phones—which is such a relevant instrument in our times, brought me back from the past to the present. I watch people and their smart phones, write about how our young people, a total generation, are beholden to it,” he said.
Good Understanding of Chinese Culture
President of Avon Canada John Novosad saw Shen Yun perform at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre in Vancouver, Canada, on March 26, 2019.
He said that Shen Yun gives people a good understanding of Chinese culture.
“Just how old it is, and how traditional it is, and how broad it is with the numerous languages and dialects,” he said.
“The dancing, the storytelling, the way they’ve told us stories is truly outstanding,” he said.
It Gets You in Your Heart
International clothing company owner Lyse Moreau watched the Shen Yun performance at the FirstOntario Concert Hall in Hamilton, Canada, on March 24, 2019.
“I get teary-eyed watching it all... From the beginning to the end, they take you through the history, they take you through their struggles, and they take you to the point where they’ve conquered [them],” she said.
“You see the beauty of the color and the delicateness of the people. You realize how fragile humanity is. The way they express themselves... It gets you in your heart. It’s very touching,” she added.
“It’s magical, it’s mystical, it’s spiritual, and the performers are amazing... It’s just beautiful,” she said.
Prior to Shen Yun's twenty performances in Ontario and British Columbia, Canada, from March 22 to March 31, public officials at federal, provincial, and municipal levels extended congratulatory remarks to the performing arts company.
