Shen Yun’s Rising Stars Present the Athletic Range of Classical Chinese Dance

2018/11/01

Shen Yun Performing Arts’ rising stars present a range of classical Chinese dance techniques. Physically rigorous and exquisitely expressive, classical Chinese dance involves systematic training in dance fundamentals as well as difficult flips, spins, leaps, postures, and tumbling techniques. It is an incredibly rich art form that has developed over 5,000 years of Chinese civilization, and is now being revived and popularized again by a group of performing artists based in upstate New York.

NOTE: This video only showcases classical Chinese dance techniques and combinations. It does not depict an actual Shen Yun performance, which involves a live orchestra, costumes, backdrops, and often storytelling, and which tours nearly 200 cities around the world each year (https://www.shenyun.com/tickets).
