New Jersey Researcher Finds Shen Yun “inspirational”
Posted by Author on May 23, 2010
NEWARK, New Jersey— Following its second performance of classical Chinese dance and unique music Shen Yun Performing Arts closed to standing ovations on May 23 at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center.
During the intermission of the afternoon show, Johnny Sandaire, a researcher for a global computer company, said the show was “inspirational.”
“They do a lot of cultural dances and they talk about beliefs, inner beliefs,” said Sandaire. “Also, they support the fact that human beings are very special and shouldn’t just focus on material things, there’s something beyond, and with 5,000 years of culture, they’re able to compress it into what I’ve seen so far.”
Included in the show are stories and dances of ancient legends, Chinese folk tales, and dynasties from China’s historic culture.
The performers with Shen Yun are trained in classical Chinese dance, as well as Chinese ethnic and folk dance. The movements are highly expressive and through a vast array of movements, enable the dancers to portray characters of several demeanors, cultures, and eras.
Sandaire said he particularly enjoyed the choreography of the show. “The way the movements are coordinated, it seems that they are floating as they are walking,” he said. “It seems like they put a lot of energy into learning and performing the arts. So I really appreciate it so far.”
Attending the show with Sandaire was his girlfriend, Kathrine Haberko, who works as a psychotherapist. She added that the choreography also stood out for her, “The design and choreography, and the lines, the way they move, it’s absolutely beautiful.”
“I love it. It’s incredible. It’s absolutely beautiful,” Haberko said.
Shen Yun Performing Arts Touring Company will perform two more shows in New Jersey Performing Arts Center, on Sunday, May 23, at 1 p.m. and 7 p.m. For more information visit ShenYunPerformingArts.org
