The People of ancient China have long held that their magnificent culture was a gift from heaven. Art was primarily a means to explore the connection between humankind and the higher universe. Through the universal language of music and dance, Shen Yun weaves a wondrous tapestry of heavenly realms, ancient legends, and modern heroic tales, taking you on a journey through 5,000 years of authentic Chinese culture. Its stunning beauty, purity, and tremendous energy leave audiences greatly uplifted and deeply inspired.
“Poetry in Motion… Priceless.”
“It is food for my heart and soul… it was something that I will keep in my heart.”
- Siegfried & Roy, Masters of the Impossible
Shen Yun cannot be seen in China today, where traditional culture has been devastated under 60 years of communist rule. Yet, Shen Yun, a non-profit performing arts company based in New York, is bringing the wonders of 5,000 years of civilization to millions of people across the globe.
