Shen Yun invites you to travel back to the magical world of ancient China. Experience a lost culture through the incredible art of classical Chinese dance, and see legends come to life. Shen Yun makes this possible by pushing the boundaries of the performing arts, with a unique blend of stunning costuming, high-tech backdrops, and an orchestra like no other. Be prepared for a theatrical experience that will take your breath away! The traditional Chinese culture Shen Yun presents cannot be seen anywhere else in the world--not even in China. In 2006, a group of Chinese artists came together in New York with a vision: to revive the best of China\'s cultural heritage and share it with the world. They drew courage and inspiration from their practice of Falun Dafa--a spiritual discipline based on the principles of truthfulness, compassion, and tolerance. The company\'s repertoire includes important works shedding light on the plight of people like them in communist China today.
