When I first sat down in the theater to see this show, I wasn’t quite sure of what to expect. And then the curtain rose. And then it hit me.
Have you ever encountered something so unexpected that it literally changes the way you think? Like the experience alters your brain? That’s what I experienced here, just thinking I was sitting down to watch something, absorb some culture, and run home. Instead, the entire theater swallowed me up in beautiful sounds. My attention fixated on the stage in front of me, which was the only thing that existed in the universe for those 2 hours.
I’m not sure if you are acquainted with this phenomenal performing arts company. I’m not quite sure how I could possibly put into words how amazing they are. I’ll just say that these are the finest collection of dancers, singers, and musicians to ever share a stage.
This is no ordinary dance performance. They revived the ancient art of classical Chinese dance. It’s mesmerizing. They’ll be in New York in January and I’ll definitely go to Lincoln Center to catch their latest performance. They do something new and different each year.
You can’t miss this performance, it brings out the artistic soul in all of us.
Shen Yun Performing Arts formed in 2006. The company brings together world class performers who grace the stages of the finest theaters worldwide. They will soon start their new tour, right after Christmas. This year they’ll put on 400 performances in 100 cities across the United States and worldwide.
They put on the type of performance that leaves you forever changed, transformed through the power of art.
