Former Ballet Dancer: ‘I Was Mesmerised’ by Shen Yun


Cheryl Miller, a former ballet dancer, decided to fly to Phoenix, Arizona to watch the performance of Shen Yun Performing Arts on March 14, 2017. She was deeply impressed, and felt like she was on the stage herself.

“I just thought that was absolutely superb. It’s amazing, absolutely amazing. I felt like I was in a dream. Everything was just floating and flowing, and so beautiful. And I love the costumes, and I know how difficult it is to move and make it look as soft and easy as they were making it look.”

The production was truly a beautiful experience for Ms. Miller, a performance out of this world.

“The movement with the music, everything was just superb. It was just, I didn’t see any, if there were mistakes you couldn’t see them. It was just absolutely beautiful. I love to watch the way they move their arms, their feet were beautiful, the way they floated across the stage, and everything was just so ethereal. It was just lovely, lovely. I was mesmerised.”

Ms. Miller said the performance made her feel like she was on the stage herself.

“That is beauty, and that is love, and that is what we should feel in this life. And they imparted that to me, and being a dancer myself, my whole body was involved. I was feeling it. I felt like I was on the stage. And when that happens to me, I know that I’m seeing something really great.”
