Mr. Berke said, “I loved it. I thought it was very innovative. It was uplifting, and it was very educational.”

Shen Yun features classical Chinese dance and music, presented through a colorful array of stories and dances drawn from China’s 5,000-year-old culture.

I think the use of costumes and movement and integration of the two was phenomenal,” he said.
