Baptist Church Bishop: “I was culturally enriched”

Anthony Williams, a Baptist Church Bishop, drove all the way from Baltimore, Maryland to attend the performance with his wife and two sons, saying, “It was worth the trip.”

Describing the show he said, “It was very inspiring! I was culturally enriched. The backdrop, the video, the dance, the music, it was just inspiring. I think it lent itself to a greater vision for my own life.”

“The show has inspired me to see that despite the misfortunes of life, God rewards us through productions such as this, and it causes us to live again. I think the dance tonight, the music, the singing, the costumes, the video photography pulls us up out of the problems and the misfortunes of life,” he said.

“I think the show has great potential to open up a whole new frontier for people who are looking for hope in a time of seemingly hopelessness.”

Bishop Williams said that as a family, “we all enjoyed the show. It was very nice.”

He concluded by saying that the Shen Yun performance “inspired me to be more with what God has called me to be.”

Christian deacon: “It was absolutely magnificent!”

Also in attendance at the show was Jeanette Dupkunas, a Christian deacon who thought the show was “magnificent!”

“I don’t know what to say … it’s, it’s gorgeous!” she said.

She mentioned that she was taken in by the “strength of the performers, the grace, and the beautiful outfits,” adding, “It was absolutely magnificent!”

“You know what I also enjoyed? The femininity of the women. It’s lost, it’s so lost. I love seeing the girls just being girls … and they were just so feminine, elegant.”

Her husband, Mr. Ron Dapkunas, a business manager, agreed with his wife’s views adding that he thought the dancers in the show were “clearly highly skilled dancers” who had undergone “a lot of training and a lot of hard work.”
