Shen yun show review:
The dancers perform with a grace and beauty that can only come from a culture as old and deep as China’s. It’s a style that’s even older than ballet, and more diverse: leaps, jumps, tumbling, and graceful movements are all part of the art. It’s also the source of many martial arts forms still practiced today.
But it’s more than just beautiful movement. The performances tell stories that span centuries of Chinese history—and a story of hope.
It’s not difficult to see how the stories could move people. From ancient imperial palaces to heavenly archery training schools, Shen Yun’s story of gods and mortals is universal. It’s also a story of human triumph, over a system that has destroyed generations of Chinese and taken away their hope.
It’s amazing that in just twelve years Shen Yun has grown from one company to five equally large companies that travel the globe performing for sold-out audiences. The company’s production is a miracle of art and culture—and an expression of the soul of the Chinese people.
