Shen Yun brings to life 5,000 years of Chinese civilization through classical Chinese dance and music in an exhilarating performance you will never forget.

Shen Yun captures the spirit of a culture long lost. The performance moves quickly through regions, dynasties, and legends. Ethnic and folk dances fill the stage with color and energy. Tremendous athleticism, thunderous battle drums, and masterful vocalists are all set to animated backdrops that transport you to another world.

It is a grand production with some 400 costumes and the only orchestra in the world featuring both classical Western and Chinese instruments as permanent members.

Based in New York, Shen Yun is the first company to present classical Chinese dance to the world on a large scale. And it has taken the globe by storm, performing in over 100 cities. Shows in top venues, like New York’s Lincoln Center, are sold out.

Think of it as a journey into a long-lost world you cannot see anywhere else—from ancient legends to heavenly palaces to the dusty plateaus of the Middle Kingdom. You cannot even find a show like this in China, where this ancient heritage has been destroyed. But now you can experience it live on stage.

For thousands of years, Chinese artists cultivated virtue, believing that to create true art worthy of the heavens, there must first be inner purity. Today, Shen Yun’s artists follow this noble tradition. The result is a performance of consummate beauty, purity, and goodness. It is a show that nourishes the soul.

Find out why artists and theatergoers around the world are calling Shen Yun “breathtaking,” “mesmerizing,” “a miracle,” and “inspiring.” Allow yourself to be taken away to distant lands and ancient legends. See Shen Yun and discover how you, too, can be inspired.
