Shen Yun Performing Arts is the world’s premier Chinese dance and music company, celebrating 5000 years of Chinese culture in their world tour with a vision to revive and share this lost heritage. With original dances, costumes and music each yearly production, Shen Yun combines breathtaking dance and enchanting music in a visual spectacle not to be missed. Here's why we think you'll love it!
Translated as “the beauty of divine beings dancing”, Shen Yun uses ethnic, folk and story-based dance to tell the history of Chinese culture through this universal language. The dancers are world-class with training that cultivates inner beauty as well as outer, adding a whole new depth to their performance. Your family won’t believe their eyes at some of the physical feats these dancers make look so easy!
Paired with this mesmerising movement is an orchestra made up of classical Chinese instruments playing traditional melodies that will transport you back to ancient China. Alongside a Western ensemble, Shen Yun Performing Arts boasts a musical harmony of East and West through their all-original compositions.
Shen Yun’s traditional, handcrafted costumes take this spectacle to the next level with a display of colour, richness and beauty that will leave you bedazzled. It’s a wonder that the performers can dance so well with such elaborate headpieces, jewels and layers of flowing fabric, but that only adds to the awe they inspire.
As if this wasn’t enough, Shen Yun Performing Arts uses illustrators and graphic designers to create animated digital backdrops for the stage to fully immerse you with their special effects. You and your children will be taken to a dreamworld as ancient Chinese gardens, sacred temples and heavenly scenes above the clouds come alive before your eyes!
If you’re looking for a truly unique family experience and visual extravaganza the kids will never forget, don’t miss the world-renowned Shen Yun Performing Arts on its limited run in London at Hammersmith's Eventim Apollo, January 17th - 26th.
