Peter Stokkebroe, a prize winning Danish professional ballroom dancer and choreographer, was thrilled and delighted with the Shen Yun show.
As the winner of several prestigious dance competitions, including World Champion and European Champion, Mr. Stokkebroe traveled extensively, including to China.
He really appreciated the opportunity to learn more about Chinese culture through watching the show. "It has been amazing to have a better insight into Chinese culture through this wonderful show," he said.
When Mr. Stokkebroe heard about the show, he wanted to come see the skills of the dancers and their artistic level.
"As a dancer myself, I am looking at the dancing and the dancers. I was very impressed by their capabilities, their technical skills and precision. Of course, that is something that fascinates me, and I must also say, the beauty of all the costumes, the colourfulness, was very impressive," Mr. Stokkebroe said.
He especially enjoyed the dance Astounding Conviction, saying,
"The guy who was taken hostage, taken by the government for his beliefs. It was a very admirable piece of dancing, and I'd love to see his solo work. But of course, when everything comes together it becomes a beautiful show to witness."
As a professional dancer, Mr. Stokkebroe sincerely appreciated the hard work, time, and dedication that went into dance set.
"Absolutely high class. Beautiful technicalities, and I can see how many hours of hard work that has been put into it. I know it myself and it is beautiful to see; the discipline and training that goes into presenting such a beautiful performance.
"I think it is a fantastic impression of Chinese culture and it gives me a much better insight to my Chinese colleagues, so I think it is a beautiful piece. Absolutely," he said.
In closing, Mr. Stokkebroe said that he would definitely recommend the show to his friends.
"I will recommend the show to them. I think it's very impressive, it's beautiful dancing, and a high, high quality performance!"

Leif Trust, a local business consultant shared his feelings after the show.
"It is so beautiful. It is very, very beautiful," said Mr. Trust. "The music is fantastic and the dances are so spectacular. It is beautiful and interesting," Mr. Trust said.
While watching the dance set, Nothing Can Block the Divine Path, his mind was flooded with memories of being in Tiananmen Square.
"I once visited the main square in Beijing and experienced a similar situation.
"The police abducted a whole crowd of people. It was a shocking experience and I thought about it when I saw this specific act," he said.
He ended by saying, "This performance is completely different from our culture. Compared to other shows, Shen Yun is so beautiful, the colour and the scenery makes it so nice."
