Choreographer and Adjudicator: Enjoying Shen Yun Show Was “An Experience”


The performance of Shen Yun Performing Arts on April 15 in Brisbane, Australia, impressed Jenny Back, a choreographer and adjudicator, who is also the principal teacher of Caboolture Ballet School. She said that Shen Yun is “almost supernatural”.

“It is a huge privilege, a huge privilege to actually be here and to experience the level of their ability, for one, that’s the basis of it all. But the ability to portray the messages that they are, through their movements, and the magical way that the choreography is sending that to us, it’s really quite amazing. And it’s hard to predict that this is what you’re going to see before you come to the show. It’s an experience.”

Ms. Back was full of praise for Shen Yun, calling the performance an experience out of this world.

“The dancing and the way they move, is of ethereal quality. But as a whole, it’s almost supernatural to watch what they’re doing, and listen to the messages that are coming through the movements.”

Shen Yun is indeed a touching experience, Ms. Back added.

“The whole thing is very very touching, and spiritually there’s magic to what they’re doing, they’re portraying the good and the bad aspects of what’s happening, and they’re showing it in a real way.

“There are moments there that you feel really touched and moved and impacted. And it’s very engaging, and it makes you soul searching. It makes you, really, really think—something to think about what’s happening.”

Shen Yun, Ms. Back said, is something that has to be experienced to be fully appreciated.

“It’s engaging. It’s quite a phenomenal performance. It’s nothing that could be predictable. It’s hard to imagine what it’s like until you experience it. It’s quite lovely.”
