Why Watch Shen Yun
A New York-based arts and entertainment company, Shen Yun is renowned for its massive-scale dance performances and symphony concerts. Typically, it involves a classical dance form of China along with folk dances from other Asian countries. Shen Yun translates to “the beauty of divine beings dancing.” The company was founded by Chinese expats to the US in 2006 with the goal of reviving China’s 5000-year old culture. The synchronized dancing and artistic choreography have won critical acclaim across the world, and the presentation makes it a perfect show for audiences of all ages.
Shen Yun immerses you in the numerous stories that reach into the distant past of Chinese culture. Classical Chinese dance accompanied by melodious orchestral works and patented special effects are sure to leave you and the audience awestruck. The performance is enchantingly beautiful and opens a portal to a civilization that existed in a world vastly different from today. Catch the hallmarks of Chinese culture over 5 millennia, as you witness everything from generals fighting with incredible athleticism to maidens dancing with mesmerizing grace! Witness a time when miracles occurred and stories of valor were told in a mythical place between heaven and earth.
