Dance instructor, Ms. Guiliano shared her experience, “It was absolutely amazing! I breathed along with the performers as they danced. It moved me!”

When the curtain opened she was instantly captivated. ” I was taken aback by all of the colors and imagery that touched me through the music, the costuming, the props–everything. It was great.”

She felt that seeing Shen Yun broadened her knowledge and understanding of traditional Chinese culture. “The tradition, the history–I feel lucky to have gotten this experience.”

Ms. Guiliano appreciated seeing traditional Chinese culture showcased in Shen Yun performances. “Each one was so unique and special in its own way. They’re so special. I loved the athleticism of the men and just the sheer grace and beauty of the women.”

Describing her reaction upon seeing contemporary issues that are taking place in China, such as the persecution of Falun Gong, she said, “I was definitely moved to tears several times–joy, sadness. It was just beautiful and it really touched me.”

Ms. Guiliano felt her students should also see Shen Yun, “I teach high school girls and I wish I could have brought each and every one of them tonight. Because it’s hard to [breaking up a little with emotion] describe it to them–it’s something that they would really experience a lot from [seeing] firsthand.”
