Witness the Divine Culture's Return with Shen Yun March 21-22, 2015
5,000 years of Chinese music and dance to come to American Bank Center Selena Auditorium


(Corpus Christi, TX September 11, 2014) Before the dawn of Western civilization, a divinely inspired culture blossomed in the East. Believed to be bestowed from the heavens, it valued virtue and enlightenment. Embark on an extraordinary journey across 5,000 years of glorious Chinese heritage, where legends come alive and good always prevails. With classical Chinese dance, live orchestra, dazzling costumes and animated backdrops, Shen Yun will transport you to another world. Millions have seen Shen Yun with standing ovations at sold-out theaters around the world, making it a global sensation. The experience of this performance is something that will touch your soul.
From battlefields to imperial palaces, classical Chinese dance has a history of thousands of years, sharing a common ancestry with martial arts. Its dramatic jumping, spinning, and flipping techniques are just part of the vast repertoire of movements that make classical Chinese dance—one of the most demanding and expressive art forms in the world. From the moment the gong is struck, you know you are in for something memorable. The Shen Yun Orchestra masterfully blends ancient Chinese instruments, like the emotive erhu and delicate pipa, with a full Western orchestra, creating an exhilarating new sound.
Colorful costumes drawing from China’s diverse dynasties and dramatic animated backdrops whisk you to faraway lands where beauty transcends time and space. From snowcapped Tibetan peaks down to boundless Mongolian grasslands, timeless ethnic and folk dances fill Shen Yun’s stage with color and energy, as resounding drums awaken the dusty plateaus of the Middle Kingdom. Brave generals, heavenly maidens, mischievous monks, and even a flying pig! China’s 5,000 years have yielded an endless trove of legends, myths. Shen Yun brings these stories to life through the enthralling power of classical Chinese dance.
In ancient China, artists valued integrity, meditation, and a mindful lifestyle. They took to heart the belief that to create inspiring art there must first be inner beauty. Today, Shen Yun’s artists follow this noble tradition, incorporating study and meditation into their rigorous daily training. The result is a performance that moves audiences in beautiful and profound ways.
