"You do so many beautiful things during the show, talk about the old Chinese culture, and this is so important. ... Sometimes it is referred, that our culture comes from the orient someplace, Asia. So, in your Shen Yun you've done such beautiful things. I love the costumes, they are so special, but I love the dancing the precision the music, the backdrops, everything is so alive and you know, it brings back the culture in a very modern way."
