NY Media Abuzz Ahead of Shen Yun’s Lincoln Center Performances
With Shen Yun Performing Arts starting an 11-show run at the illustrious Lincoln Center this Saturday, New York media are buzzing with excitement.
Last year, Shen Yun played at Lincoln Center twice, for one week each time. Tickets were completely sold out and an extra show was added last-minute; it was packed, too.
This April 20-28, Shen Yun’s New York Company—just back from a tour of sold-out shows in Europe—returns to Lincoln Center’s David H. Koch Theater. Multiple publications in the metropolitan area are reporting about the anticipated run, coming at the end of Shen Yun’s tour season.
Here are a few examples and excerpts:

“What makes these dancers so close and united? The answer may lie with Shen Yun’s mission, which is to revive 5,000 years of traditional Chinese culture. And helping people rediscover themselves culturally, emotionally, and spiritually is all part of the dance. As London Royal Ballet instructor Judy Wiles explains, ‘The magic in many ways comes through the eyes to the audience. Their eyes are alive and sparkling, full of life’.”
“And it indeed seems that behind their intricate footwork, aerial craftsmanship, and personal munificence, there lies a lesson for the world’s people, a lesson in compassion and selflessness.”
