Shen Yun: A Connection to Heaven

Emerson Que was glad he saw Shen Yun at the Curtis M. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts on Jan. 14, 2017. He said the performance made him feel proud of his heritage. “I’m so happy,” he said. (Sally Sun /Epoch Times)

“It’s phenomenal.”

 

“My father is Chinese. I’m proud of [the performance]. I am very, very proud of it. Now I know and feel where my father came from.”
 

“It’s spiritual. It hits you inside, like your soul, your spirit. … It’s divine, like [a] connection to heaven. … There’s a connection between here and heaven, the earth and heaven. There’s a oneness to it.”
 

“I highly recommend it. … It’s for everybody. It’s not only for one nation, but it’s for everybody.”

In 2006, Chinese artists who wanted to revive China’s authentic traditional culture and share it with the world established Shen Yun Performing Arts in New York. Shen Yun has since grown to five companies that tour the world, performing in over 150 theaters each year. 

Spirituality

Ancient Chinese culture was said to be divinely inspired. Its beliefs stemmed from the core value of harmony between heaven, earth, and humankind. Accordingly, the Chinese practiced self-cultivation and endeavored to live by principles such as justice, wisdom, propriety, and benevolence. Shen Yun reflects these ideas in its very name, which means the beauty of divine beings dancing.  ​
