What the heck is Shen Yun?

Another way to think of it is, what Shen Yun is not.

It’s not ballet, not modern or contemporary dance. It’s not from China, and in fact in no ways connected to the political regime of communist China. And lastly, it’s not at all inaccessible, like some classical arts.

Shen Yun is a classical Chinese dance company that produces vivacious works of dance, accompanied always by a live orchestra. Its performers are wrapped in vibrant costuming, with its choreography set to stunningly innovative, patented three-dimensional backdrops. The result is breathtaking beautiful and moving art that has won the acclaim and affection of millions around the world. Click here to see, up and close, what viewers are saying.
