Start of the Journey
Shen Yun Performing Arts was formed in 2006, when the believers of Falun Dafa got together with a mission to bring their marvelous tradition onstage. With a team of approximately 30 dancers and musicians, the company produced a number of shows during its inaugural season and toured around the US. With an overwhelming response, it expanded its shows to international level and visited almost 130 countries around the world. Shen Yun Performing Arts keeps getting better with time and now has become a global phenomenon.
About the Show
The show is inspired from various Chinese classical, folk and popular dance forms. Some of the routines are also based on different myths and legendary tales of the civilization. Flexible acrobatics, high leaps, elongated body movements and delicate dance movements highlight the façade of their sequences.
