Description: Classical Chinese dance and music combine in a colorful and exhilarating show where dozens of dancers in dazzling costumes, a live orchestra, thunderous drums, and spectacular backdrops showcase 5,000 years of Chinese civilization.
Shen Yun has performed to acclaim in more than 100 cities worldwide. At the core of Shen Yun's performances is classical Chinese dance, and China's numerous ethnic and folk dance styles round out the evening along with masterful vocalists and musicians. In a collection of short pieces, audiences travel from the Himalayas to tropical lake-filled regions; from the legends of the culture's creation more than 5,000 years ago to contemporary tales of courage; from the highest heavens down to the dusty plateaus of the Middle Kingdom.
