New York-based Shen Yun is the world's top classical Chinese dance company, and the honorable quest to show the beauty and goodness of China's rich culture. Formed in 2006 by Falun Gong, it soon became one of the rising entertainment companies of the decade. With its continuous growth, the company soon gained its orchestra around 2009 and was able to accumulate three companies that can tour the world at large. And with the group's continuing hard work and undeniable talent, approximately one million people had seen the troupe perform by the end of 2010.
A large ensemble of dance and acrobats is the center of Shen Yun's brilliance. They portray intricate costumes and beautiful depictions of various ethnicities, and the rest imitate Chinese court dancers, soldiers, or characters from classic stories. The company draws on stories from Chinese history and legends, such as the "Legend of Mulan," "Journey to the West," and "Outlaws of the Marsh." Shen Yun's mission is to revive the richest and most fruitful time of culture in China through breathtaking historical music and dance brought to you in one sitting.
