ORLANDO, Fla.—Businessman Manuchehr Saman attended Shen Yun Performing Arts at the Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts on March 19.

“I think it’s one of the best shows I’ve ever seen,” Mr. Saman said. “I did not know anything about Chinese culture and I learned a lot. It’s incredible.”

He said the dance was very inspiring. “What inspired me the most is the dance and, actually everything, but especially, dance. I never knew this particular move came from China, I had no clue. So today I learned all about movement and dance that was created in China. I had no idea, so this was a very nice experience for me.”

Based in New York, Shen Yun was founded in 2006 by leading Chinese artists and quickly became the world’s premier classical Chinese dance and music company. Shen Yun’s mission is to revive traditional Chinese culture.

Shen Yun’s performance of classical Chinese dance impressed Mr. Saman. “This effort for this dance is unbelievable,” he said. “I already read most information about the artists and dancers and they are super educated. At a very young age they are engaged in a very serious profession and culture. So I am truly impressed.”

Mr. Saman said he saw the beauty of divine beings dancing, and the inner beauty behind the movement, as the dancers start training at a young age. “Actually, I read about it and, definitely, the performance was absolutely incredible, based on what they have learned in New York in the past, since some of them were 7 years old.”

The spiritual connection between Chinese culture and the divine Creator was new to Mr. Saman. “The connection to me was very new. I learned a lot about their strong belief in God, or the Creator. It’s very impressive to know that truly people of China believe in a higher power. So that’s very impressive.”

“I am hoping that [the] Chinese government will become more open-minded about people and be free, like people in United States can express their feelings, and I hope for the best for the Chinese people,” he said. “I have many, many Chinese friends, and they are great people. Hopefully, we will see what happens in the future in a positive way.”

To the performing artists, Mr. Saman wished to say, “I’d love to tell them the artists were amazing. I wish them the best of luck for the future.”
