Various elected officials saw Shen Yun Performing Arts in Chicago over the weekend. Here's what they have to say about the show.

Shen Yun Performing Arts was at the Civic Opera House in Chicago on April 10th and 11th, where various elected officials saw the show.

Cook County President Todd Stroger says he enjoyed the show with his family.

[Todd Stroger, President, Cook County Board of Commissioners]:
“The show was excellent. I asked my family if they wanted to go, they were very excited. And it lived up to everything they expected and I did, too.”

Other audience members hope more people can see Shen Yun.

[Ms. Alvarez, Attorney]:
“I did, I brought my daughters and they enjoyed it. They really did. They thought it was so pretty, again with the colors and just with the traditional classic dance. It’s amazing, I think everyone should see the show.”

[Scott Waguespack, Chicago Alderman]:
“We don’t always have the opportunity to see the dance and the art form that we saw today so it’s wonderful for us to have that opportunity. And I hope a lot of people in Chicago and around the United States can experience it.”

Riverside Mayor Deyon Dean says it was wonderful.

[Deyon Dean, Riverside Mayor]:
“It brought more meaning to me and my wife. We just said, this is wonderful. The dancers did a lovely job, the singers did wonderful. We hope to just come back and support the organization.”

For Chicago Alderman Scott Waguespack, Shen Yun is an opportunity to learn about authentic Chinese culture and values.

[Scott Waguespack, Chicago Alderman]:
“Twenty years ago I was sitting in my dorm room as a freshman in college and I saw what happened at Tiananmen Square. And for many years we haven’t been allowed to see the culture that we would like to. And I think this is an opportunity for us to see what has happened and how organizations and groups like Shen Yun can really promote good values and share culture with Americans.”
