Sydney Dance Teacher Says Shen Yun “absolutely beautiful”

Posted by Author on May 14, 2010

SYDNEY– With Shen Yun Performing Arts New York company almost halfway through its scheduled performances in Sydney at the Big Top Theatre in Luna Park, audience members from this evening’s show were raving about the performance.

Annette Vella, a dance teacher who for 35 years has run five dance groups, said that the show was “absolutely beautiful.” Ms. Vella was originally a gymnast and later studied classical ballet. She has two daughters who have traveled through China, but she has never been there.

“It was beautiful, absolutely beautiful,” the dance teacher said. “The music and the movement and the color—what they are doing is so beautiful, so elegant.”

She was impressed with the classical Chinese dance performances: “It’s more elegant than I have seen,” she said. She liked the colorful scenic backdrops, the storytelling through dance, and the representation of different ethnic regions, like Mongolia.

“I had never seen a Mongolian dance before. And it was nice to learn about the silk dance. The beautiful smoke with the clouds and the fairies of the sky—that was really nice.”

“I loved the men—really strong dance from the men. That was fantastic. They are really athletic, but so light on their feet that they just float in the air. The leaps are beautiful,” she said.

Shen Yun uses innovative animated backdrops that integrate with the scenes on stage, something Ms. Vella enjoyed: “That was fantastic. That really adds to the color, and the costumes often blend in with the background too, especially the silk dance.”

Ms. Vella was also impressed with tenor Hong Ming, who sang Calmly Take a Look. She said he had a “beautiful voice” and felt that his singing uplifted her spirit.

“You couldn’t go away feeling disappointed or sad from the show, that’s for sure.”

Ms. Vella said she would be back next year with her dance class. “I would have bought my dance class to come and watch. I told them about it today, and I said you have got to go and see it. I’m going. We will be there … next year for sure.” (The Epochtimes)
