EXPERIENCE The Beauty of Ancient China Before Communism SHEN YUN'S unique artistic vision expands theatrical experience into a multi-dimensional, deeply moving journey. Featuring one of the world's most ancient and richest dance systems - classical Chinese dance - along with dynamic animated backdrops and all-original orchestral works, Shen Yun opens a portal to a civilization of enchanting beauty and enlightening wisdom. Shen Yun Performing Arts is a nonprofit organization based in New York. Its mission is to revive 5,000 years of traditional Chinese culture. Traditional Chinese culture - with its deep spiritual roots and profoundly optimistic worldview - was displaced by communism in China. While Shen Yun cannot perform in China today, it is sharing this precious heritage with the world.
