The classical Chinese dance was developed based on the extensive Chinese culture which dates back thousands of years. Encompassing a vast array of techniques such as jumps, spins, flips and other very difficult tumbling moves, the dance can be masculine and energetic, soft and graceful, grave and inspiring, lively and humorous. The vast repertoire of movements and postures of the dance, while may appear effortless, enables the vivid representation of a variety of emotions.
The Shen Yun Orchestra flawlessly combines Western and Chinese instruments and creates a dramatic new sound. You'll hear the beautiful sounds of ancient Chinese instruments such as the emotive erhu and the delicate pipa in addition to a full symphony orchestra consisting of Western strings, percussion, woodwinds and brass. This will be something you've never heard before, mark my words.
Ethnic & Folk Dances
Be dazzled and wowed by the ethnic and folk dances that fill the stage. Witness the Mongolians riding across the endless grasslands, allow the ladies of the Yi ethnic group charm you with their dances by the river, spot the celestial fairies in the clouds, and hear the booming drums awakening the dusty plateaus.
