What religion is Shen Yun?

Shen Yun is not a religion. Shen Yun is a non-profit, classical performing arts company that seeks to preserve and revitalize classical Chinese dance as well as the rich, precious culture out of which it was born. The company’s works draw from traditional Chinese beliefs, legends, and tales, as well as those of importance from contemporary China. Past works have included Buddhist and Daoist themes, Confucian scholars, as well as, drawing from more recent history, the persecuted faith known as Falun Gong.
