    New York-based Shen Yun Performing Arts is currently performing in both Houston, Texas and Ottawa, Canada. Our correspondent in Houston yesterday spoke with a former ballerina who really enjoyed her encounter with Chinese classical dance.

    Sasha Davis trained at the Royal Ballet School in London. She now lives in Houston, Texas. On Wednesday night she saw Shen Yun Performing Arts for the first time.

    [Sasha Davis, Former Ballerina]:
    "They're amazing. Technically their amazing, in their precision but also in their artistry."

    Ms. Davis says Shen Yun's female dancers are very feminine, but very strong.

    [Sasha Davis, Former Ballerina]:
    "And the male dancers are very strong indeed. But everyone is so light on their feet."

    One dance student was also impressed by Chinese classical dance.

    [Madison Calicchia, Dance Student]:
    "It was incredible. I couldn't even understand how—they were so technically perfect, with everything that they did. And it was just unbelievable."

    Shen Yun takes the audience on a journey from the founding of Chinese civilization 5000 years ago to the present day.

    [Madison Calicchia, Dance Student]:
    "In school I have studied Chinese history, but I didn't understand as well as just watching this show."

    She says Shen Yun's dancers were "amazing."

    [Madison Calicchia, Dance Student]:
    "I imagine a lot of people in the audience were probably like, 'Oh this is so great, they're amazingly flexible.' And I'm sitting there as a dancer going, 'How is that physically possible. I could never do that.' It was just amazing."
