    "It's a beautiful program. Very interesting, dynamic, colorful, harmonious. And it's an exceptional way for us to enjoy Chinese culture. And if it weren't for Shen Yun we wouldn't know what Chinese culture is."

    [Robert W. Kasten, Former U.S. Congressman]:
    "Young Chinese Americans that are carrying on the traditions that go back hundreds, thousands of years, in terms of the dances and the moves and the various dances. But it's very exciting and I'm very happy to be here."

    Many audience members had seen the show before.
