SHEN YUN RECONNECTS US TO THE TRADITIONAL CHINESE HERITAGE

Shen Yun is reconnecting us to the traditional Chinese culture heritage. Since 2006, our family has been watching the Shen Yun show each year. We are amazed by the beautiful costumes that show the richness in China's past. Our kids love the stories, from journey to the west to legends of mulan, it is the best way to learn the 5,000 years of Chinese civilization.

MY FAMILY WAS ENCHANTED

I went to Shen Yun two years ago with my family. They were enchanted, even my rather macho son-in-law and 9 year old grandson. which rather surprised me. What a remarkable group of young people, and the story of the troupe itself is inspiring. My aunt was so impressed with the professionalism of the performers, and I love the costumes.

I LOVE SHEN YUN

I find this show to be a truly remarkable production. I have watched it several years in a row and find it amazing that each year they create a whole new show. The technical abilities of the dancers in Shen Yun is far beyond any other Chinese dance performance I have seen. Their ability to dance in perfect synchronization just blows my mind. How do they do it? To make all the costumes is its self amazing. Such delicate fabric has to be hand sewn. They are truly gorgeous. As a musician that loves classical music I am transfixed by the way they have blended Chinese and western instruments in such a flawless fusion to create a new sound. It is like whole new way to express music that is at once contemporary yet ancient. The scenes from contemporary China are so moving. Such great traditions have been lost to the communist rule. I am always left with a great sense of hope for not only China but all of humanity after seeing Shen Yun. I say its a must see show

SUPERB

Saw the performance last year in Seattle—very, very well done. Top notch in every respect. A genuine glimpse into China's ancient culture.

WORTHY PERFORMANCE; RARE GEM FROM THE US

I have been hearing about Shen Yun for quite a few years now. As a fan of Cate Blanchett, when I realized she took her entire family to see the show, I thought this show must really be something. I was watching Lord of the Rings reruns and I thought, "Hey, she watched Shen Yun!" At last, I convinced my husband to go see this; I am so glad I did. All I can say is that you must watch it at least once to get the full experience. I heard afterwards this show isn't allowed in China. I can see why... because they are not fake like everything else the communist does. This show is Made in the USA, and not Made in China. I am sold.

SOMETHING YOU CAN'T MISS

I spent over 30 years back in China, never watched a show like this. It is soooo spectacular and unique! I have tears in my eyes when I watched it and my heart was so deeply touched by the music and story. It is something not only for Chinese, it is for everyone. Once you watch it, it is something unforgettable in your life time!
