SHEN YUN RECONNECTS US TO THE TRADITIONAL CHINESE HERITAGE
Shen Yun is reconnecting us to the traditional Chinese culture heritage. Since 2006, our family has been watching the Shen Yun show each year. We are amazed by the beautiful costumes that show the richness in China's past. Our kids love the stories, from journey to the west to legends of mulan, it is the best way to learn the 5,000 years of Chinese civilization.

SOMETHING YOU CAN'T MISS
I spent over 30 years back in China, never watched a show like this. It is soooo spectacular and unique! I have tears in my eyes when I watched it and my heart was so deeply touched by the music and story. It is something not only for Chinese, it is for everyone. Once you watch it, it is something unforgettable in your life time!

Saw the performance last year in Seattle—very, very well done. Top notch in every respect. A genuine glimpse into China's ancient culture.

CAN'T WAIT FOR THIS YEAR'S PERFORMANCE
I've seen the Shen Yun show for the last 2 years, and can't wait for this year's performance. I love all the vibrant colors and the beautiful music. I've never seen a performance that uses an animated backdrop like this before.

I LOVE SHEN YUN
I find this show to be a truly remarkable production. I have watched it several years in a row and find it amazing that each year they create a whole new show. The technical abilities of the dancers in Shen Yun is far beyond any other Chinese dance performance I have seen. Their ability to dance in perfect synchronization just blows my mind. How do they do it? To make all the costumes is its self amazing. Such delicate fabric has to be hand sewn. They are truly gorgeous. As a musician that loves classical music I am transfixed by the way they have blended Chinese and western instruments in such a flawless fusion to create a new sound. It is like whole new way to express music that is at once contemporary yet ancient. The scenes from contemporary China are so moving. Such great traditions have been lost to the communist rule. I am always left with a great sense of hope for not only China but all of humanity after seeing Shen Yun. I say its a must see show

THE BEST SHOW I'VE EVER SEEN
I am a lover of classics, music and dance. Ballet attracts people for its movement, symphony touches soul through tones. But, this show comes to a perfect match for both. I have seen it in Austin last December, and couldn't help to spend the next day seeing it for the second time. Many of the bad comments here are pretty misleading, how could you feel satisfied for a classical Chinese dance only expecting a ballet? It is DIFFERENT genre! To clarify some common misunderstandings, say, all programs are repeating. They are about totally different stories, but meanwhile all 20 programs manifest an integrity of spirit, compassion and braveness. Believe me or not, you gonna never see shows of this level anywhere else.
