Why See Shen Yun Performing Arts?

5,000 YEARS OF CULTURE DISTILLED FOR YOUR VIEWING PLEASURE

Shen Yun presents colorful and exhilarating performances of classical Chinese dance and music. A performance by this company is a true representation of traditional Chinese culture as it once was: a study in grace, wisdom, and the virtues distilled from the five millennia of Chinese civilization. A non-profit organisation with spiritual roots, it is banned in modern China, however it continues to take the rest of the world by storm.

WHAT CAN I EXPECT?

For every performance season, Shen Yun unveils an entirely new lineup of dances, songs, and musical scores. At the core of Shen Yun's performances is classical Chinese dance with China's numerous ethnic and folk dance styles rounding out the evening.

Based in New York, Shen Yun Performing Arts was established by a group of Falun Dafa practitioners in 2006. They use the performing arts to revive the essence of Chinese culture - all 5,000 years of it - which is traditionally considered a divinely inspired civilization. The group is unwelcome in its spiritual home of China, as the Communist Party is officially an atheist regime, and does not endorse the spirituality shown in the show.
