Shen Yun ‘Incredibly Moving and Touching,’ Dancer Says

William and Sheba Kodrowsky experienced their first Shen Yun performance at the Curtis M. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts on Jan. 25, 2017. Mrs. Kodrowsky, who has danced semi-professionally, said the performance exceeded her expectations.

“I’m very touched by learning the [Chinese] history through dance. I’m a dancer myself and have been all my life. I just love the message of life through dance. This is a level above that because it speaks to the ideals and principles of a society. … I find it incredibly moving and touching.”

 

“ [The dancers] just looked to me like they’re on the air, on clouds—just so joyful to watch.”

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.  ​
