The Finnish people long for the performance

Kaija Raty-Omar is the Principal of Helsinki Let’s Dance School. When seeing the advertising posters and leaflets of the Chinese Spectacular, she said with a smile, “Hey, it is so beautiful!” The Principal opened her notebook immediately and looked at her diary, “Hey, I have no engagement on 30th March!” Having seeing the short DVD presentation of the Chinese Spectacular, the Principal said of her own accord, “I will send emails to all the dance schools I know. This is my responsibility.” On the same day, she and her two students booked the tickets for the show on 30th March and they were in third row seats.

A Chinese man from the mainland China who is running a Martial Arts School happened to meet on his way the working staff of the sponsors who were putting up the advertisement of the Chinese Spectacular. He said to them of his own accord, “I have more than one hundred students at my school. Give me some advertisements. I will help you to put up at my school. I will ask them to watch the performance. There are Ballet dancers among my students. I will surely go and watch it when I have time. The traditional Chinese culture programmes can hardly be seen nowadays in China".

A working staff member of the sponsors of the Chinese Spectacular spoke to a gentleman on the train from Tampere to Helsinki. He went up to him and told him about the Chinese Spectacular to be shown in Tampere. It so happened that the gentleman was called Hannu who turned out to be the Mayor. He became interested. He read the leaflet about the Spectacular once and said, “I will take my whole family to watch it.” Then he added, “I will soon go to meet with some Members of Parliament in Helsinki. I will tell them about this information.” When parting, he asked for more leaflets about the Chinese Spectacular.

Ms. Viola is a resident of Tampere Talo and a music teacher. She booked the tickets as soon as she learned the news. When the working staff of the sponsors of the Chinese Spectacular met with her in a shopping centre, she said excitedly, “I have booked the tickets. It is so beautiful.”

The government officials looked forward to the arrival of the Divine Performing Arts. In addition to extending their greetings to the Divine Performing Arts and to recommending it to the people, they all expressed that, for Finland, the performance was a rare opportunity!
