Shen Yun was founded by a group of leading classical Chinese artists who came together in New York with
one wish in mind: to revive the true, divinely inspired culture of China and share it with the world. Through the universal
language of music and dance, Shen Yun gives us a chance to journey through 5,000 years of Chinese culture. Each dynasty was
assigned its own dance and style, using the integration of the body. Shen Yun is combining the technical skill, with form
and bearing, to give you a chance to look into the past. Blending heavenly realms, ancient legends and modern heroic tales,
its beauty and energy leaves audiences uplifted and inspired.
Said to be an art form tempered over thousands of years,
classical Chinese dance has helped preserve 5,000 years of Chinese culture, once passed down among the people in imperial
courts and through ancient plays. Over thousands of years, it was continuously refined, developing into the vast and distinctly
Chinese dance form we know today. Shen Yun is keeping the past alive, and we are better for it! For 60 years, mainland China
has with its communist regime treated traditional Chinese values - centered on the idea of harmony between heaven and earth
- as a threat to its existence. The most traditional, pure classical dance is gone from mainland Chine, and in its place is
a superficial dance with its own communist agenda.
Xiong Li Director of the Xiong Li Dance Company in Hong Kong said,
"It's really touching. It's indeed incredible. With such wonderful culture and art, Shen Yun is indeed China's hope... in
terms of preserving and promoting traditional Chinese culture, only Shen Yun achieves it. It is really not easy to do it persistently
and effectively. I think it is very meaningful for Shen Yun Performing Arts to carry forward the traditional Chinese culture,
because this kind of culture can save China. Without it, China is bound to collapse. Under the one-party autocracy and the
party culture education, people's morality is declining... Truthfulness, compassion and tolerance are universal values, because
they are humane characteristics and proper human nature. In Shen Yun performances, I have found the future of China and the
hope of China."
