A Heavenly Gift

IN ANCIENT TIMES, China was heralded as the Land of the Divine. So majestic was its culture that it was thought to be a gift from above. Its people sought to live their lives in harmony with nature and the universe. It was a world rich with creativity, beauty, and virtue. We now invite you to visit this lost civilization, through Shen Yun.

Shen Yun pushes the boundaries of the performing arts, melding timeless artistry with cutting-edge innovation—transporting you to a world where legends come to life. Discover the breathtaking beauty of classical Chinese dance, and treat yourself to Shen Yun’s unique blend of costuming, high-tech backdrops, and live orchestra. Be prepared for a theater experience like no other.

A Heritage Once Lost

The traditional Chinese culture Shen Yun presents cannot be seen anywhere else in the world—not even in China. There, the ruling communist regime has viewed China’s rich spiritual and artistic heritage as a threat to its ideology, and for decades sought to erase it. Chinese artists have suffered untold ordeals over the past century.

But in 2006, a group of Chinese artists came together in New York with a vision of preserving the best of China’s cultural heritage and sharing it with the world. They drew courage and inspiration from their shared practice of Falun Dafa (or “Falun Gong,” as it is also called)—a spiritual discipline common to all of Shen Yun’s artists. The company’s repertoire regularly includes important works shedding light on the plight of believers like themselves in communist China today.

Full Houses Everywhere

Shen Yun is now the world’s premier classical Chinese dance company. Some people fly from other countries or drive hundreds of miles to see it. Others see the same performance five or six times. Why? There’s only one way to find out, and that’s to experience Shen Yun yourself.
