With classical Chinese dance and music, dazzling backdrops and costumes, Shen Yun takes you on a journey into 5,000 years of divine culture.
For thousands of years, China was known as the Divine Land. Its rich culture, said to be from the heavens, valued virtues like integrity, compassion, and tolerance...
Then, under 60 years of communist rule, this glorious culture was almost destroyed. That is why you cannot see a performance like this in China today.
In 2006, leading Chinese artists from around the world came together in New York with a mission to revive authentic Chinese culture. They formed Shen Yun, and now invite you to witness the divine culture's return.
Shen Yun brings to life 5,000 years of Chinese civilization through classical Chinese dance and music in an exhilarating production. The performance moves quickly through regions, dynasties, and legends. It is a grand production with some 400 costumes and a unique orchestra featuring both classical Western and Chinese instruments, while ethnic and folk dances fill the stage with color and energy. Tremendous athleticism, thunderous battle drums, and masterful vocalists are all set to dazzling animated backdrops that will transport you to another world

Ancient Chinese artists believed that to create true art worthy of the heavens, one must first cultivate inner beauty and purity. Today, Shen Yun’s artists follow this noble tradition. This spiritual connection is the heart behind each dancer’s movement and each musician's note. It is why people in the audience feel there’s something different about Shen Yun.
