A Heavenly Gift The culture of ancient China was divinely inspired. Shen Yun's works reflect this rich spiritual heritage. 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! 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 tried to erase it. But in 2006, a group of Chinese artists came together in New York with a vision: to revive the best of China's cultural heritage.
