Inspiring, educational, uplifting. Shen Yun promotes good traditional values. I took my child to see the performance multiple times over the years. He enjoyed it.

5.0 star rating Lee Huynh from Houston, TX


I was surprised about the negative reviews posted on here, so I felt I had to say something to do Shen Yun justice. Many people may not be aware of the authentic Chinese culture that has been destroyed in China in recent decades, and hence could not comprehend the significant meaning and beauty Shen Yun brings to the audience. I have met many experts and professors studying China who have been impressed by the accurate description of Chinese culture in Shen Yun. It is a wonderful show, and we have made it a tradition to go see the show every year. The dancing, the music, the costumes, and the story-telling are really beautiful, precise, and awe-inspiring. You can tell these performers and musicians have poured their hearts and souls to entertain the audience. Of course, art is in the eye of the beholder, so I suggest everyone to look at positive reviews, including the videos posted online, and make a judgment for yourself if you want to go or not.

This show is amazing and beautiful... Need to come and see this show again

5.0 star rating Nancy D from Providence, Rhode Island


I found this to be so uplifting. The dancers were awesome, the costumes were elegant and the portrayal of the Chinese culture was honorable. It was refreshing to see women dancers who possess a true sense of femininity and grace. Sadly those who immerse themselves in our current culture couldn’t possibly appreciate this play because they have a lack of understanding of the evil of communism. I am a Christian and even though I don’t believe in their gods, I can at least appreciate the fact that they believe in something rather that the false atheism that pervades the current culture and brainwashes many into the twisted idea that good.

5.0 star rating Jane from London


I treated myself to this show as a "Australia Day" gift, the show didn't fail to delight, it was amazing to see the performers being transported into the backdrop. the music told the story without words so boldly that I found myself being transported into their world as well. The mix of instruments was exceptional with the traditional Chinese sounds tugging at your heart. Shen Yun thank you for making my day an amazing one and I hope that you continue to amaze for many years to come.

Amazing ... 5,000 years of journey ... beside beauty, soul in it

5.0 star rating Jenny from Orlando, Florida


My daughter and I have seen Shen Yun for the past five years. We bought the tickets as Christmas gifts, and that is the only Christmas gift I wanted for myself. I also brought my mother to see the show. Every time when I watched the show, something in it really touched my heart and brought tears to me. It is such a beautiful and amazing performance in high quality. I love every aspect of the artistic part of it, the dances, the colorful costumes, the live orchestra, the backdrops… I also love the unique history, the culture, as well as the positive and inspiring stories it presented. I felt my mind got purified and my heart got refreshed when leaving the theater. Shen Yun is the best performance show I have seen ever! It is a must see for everyone…
