For 5,000 years divine culture flourished in the land of China. Humanity’s treasure was nearly lost, but through breathtaking music and dance, Shen Yun is bringing back this glorious culture.
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 Chinese culture. Its stunning beauty and tremendous energy leave audiences uplifted and inspired. A Shen Yun performance features the world’s foremost classically trained dancers, a unique orchestra blending East and West, and dazzling animated backdrops—together creating one spectacular performance.
In 2006, A Group of leading classical Chinese artists came together in New York with one wish: to revive the true, divinely inspired culture of China and share it with the world. Entirely non-profit, and independent of the Chinese regime, Shen Yun enjoys the artistic freedom of New York, enabling it to now bring these ancient traditions to the stage. Shen Yun and its mission have drawn top talent from around the world; many artists are winners of international competitions in dance, choreography, and music.
Every year, Shen Yun Performing Arts travels for about six months, performing in some 20 countries and 100 cities. An all-new show is programmed each season and Shen Yun Performing Arts tours with it around the globe, performing at the world’s top venues—Lincoln Center in New York, Kennedy Center in Washington, the London Coliseum; our Shen Yun Symphony Orchestra has played at Carnegie Hall and this year is touring other revered concert halls across the United States. Our sold-out audiences include star actors, fashion leaders, government VIPs, and international celebrities.
