NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J.—Through a performance of classical Chinese dance, Shen Yun Performing Arts wowed the audience at yet another full house at New Jersey’s State Theatre on June 21.

Among those attending was professional football player, Leroy Brooks, who said it was his first time seeing the show.

“It was a nice show,” said Mr. Brooks. “It was great!”

Shen Yun Performing Arts came into being in 2006 with a vision of cultural renewal. In the few short years since then, the New York-based company has become the world’s premier Chinese dance and music company.

After seeing the show, Mr. Brooks said that although an energetic Tang Dynasty drum dance stuck with him the most, he also enjoyed the more gentle dances and performances of Chinese legends.

Speaking about the whole show, Mr. Brooks said “it was wonderful.”

In addition to the dances and performances, Shen Yun also prides itself in having the first full professional orchestra of both Chinese and Western instruments.

It seamlessly blends the sounds of exotic instruments, such as the water-like trickle of the Pipa and the light sounds of Chinese flutes, with more recognizable sounds such as the French Horn and violin.

When asked what he thought of the music, Mr. Brooks said: “Oh, it was nice. The orchestra was nice.”
