Shen Yun, the world’s premier classical Chinese dance and music company performs an all-new show at New Jersey Performing Arts Center, May 3-7, 2017. It is a captivating and inspiring experience of authentic Chinese culture that cannot be seen in China today.
The name Shen Yun means the beauty of divine beings dancing. Shen Yun now has five equally large companies that tour the world simultaneously, bringing an all-new performance of dance, costumes, animated backdrops, singing, and music to over 150 theaters every year.
“5,000 years of Chinese music and dance in one night!”
— The New York Times
Thousands of years ago, China was known as the Land of the Divine. The ancient Chinese believed that their glorious civilization was a gift from the heavens. But that world was lost—until now. Shen Yun brings this world to life. Fascinating stories from 5,000 years of Chinese culture are told through the vivid athleticism and deep expressiveness of classical Chinese dance, one of the most demanding art forms in the world. A groundbreaking East-West orchestra captures the spirit of ancient China. Grand animated backdrops place the audience right inside the action. And Shen Yun’s uplifting energy is something you can feel long after the curtain falls.
Based in New York, Shen Yun is entirely non-profit. Its artists have come from around the world to revive this glorious heritage. Since its establishment in 2006, the company has become a global sensation, performing for over a million audience members around the world.
