Happy Earth Day!

At the heart of traditional Chinese culture is an ancient belief: A connection exists between heaven and earth, and humanity is intertwined with the rest of the universe.

This Earth Day, we’re taking a moment to watch At One With Nature, a short film our dancers produced last year. It explores the wonders that surround us, and honors the harmony among the heavens, earth,...

The wind blows gently. Birds chirp in the distance. Clouds are few, as the sun shines brightly in the clear blue sky. It’s another beautiful day in Rotterdam, Netherlands, and our dancers have found the perfect spot. Out on the rooftop terrace of Nieuwe Luxor Theater, Michelle Wu and Stephanie Guo synchronize their huang-shou (晃手) and nimbly leap together, reaching for the heavens, basking in...

The Mystical Udumbara

Omens that portend great events don’t always come in the form of grand prophecies—sometimes they’re small and easy to miss. Sometimes, they're only 4 mm tall.

The rare udumbara flower was first mentioned by the founder of Buddhism, Buddha Sakyamuni. He prophesied that in 3,000 years, this mystical flower would appear, and its appearance would signify that the Holy King...

Bogotá it was great to meet you!

This may have been our first time there, but we certainly felt your warm welcome, with all our shows being sold out! As one fan, Fernando Belfioretti, mentioned, it was “something you must see.”

Now we’re halfway through our show lineup in the equally warm Buenos Aires. With five shows to go, you still have the chance to catch us in 2017! [ Sypa.us Link ]

The Oriental Phoenix in Art

Have you ever spotted the beautiful oriental phoenix (feng huang in Chinese) in traditional Chinese artwork? Throughout the dynasties, the feng huang has been a symbol of beauty, grace, and the divine. Images of these mythical birds are found everywhere: painted on porcelain, woven into tapestries, painted on silk and even sculpted into beautiful rooftop...

The number 5 is often overlooked. Clearly, it’s not No. 1! Nor is it the great 8 or lucky number 7. When it comes to musicians, many only count up to 4. So the number 5, it often ends up being seen as … just ordinary.

Yet this prime number has significance. Consider our major organs, senses, fingers and toes, all 5’s—how significant are they? Additionally, 5 plays the role of a "common...

The Phoenix and the Dragon

When the oriental phoenix is paired with the dragon – the match is, well, unmatchable! It is considered the luckiest and most auspicious of all unions! When depicted together, they signify blissful relations, good fortune, and enduring strength.

The symbol of the phoenix and the dragon also represent the connection between the royal family and the divine, so...

No matter how you count it, that’s all the time that’s left to see this season’s Shen Yun production. If you haven’t seen the performance yet, or you’re eager to catch one… time’s running out.

“Which cities still have shows?” Glad you asked. On our website ([ Sypa.us Link ], we have a comprehensive list of cities on the schedule that you can...

The best offense is a good defense—this seemingly paradoxical saying is common in sports, where a good defense can disrupt and redirect an offense’s energy into launching an attack of its own. In classical Chinese dance, there’s a move that embodies this concept called 吊腰 (diào yāo), which literally translates as, hanging hip.

You might have seen 吊腰 in our performances. One moment, a dancer,...

The Asian Phoenix

According to Greek and Roman legend, every millennium or so, an ancient, peacock-like, mythical bird self-ignites and then proceeds to disintegrate into ash. Out of those ashes, a new phoenix rises up and soars into the sky. This is the phoenix of the West—a symbol of renewal and second chances. In the Orient, however, a very different phoenix rules the skies.

Can you raise your hand above your head? Seems pretty simple. How about your foot above your head? (Yes, standing up.) Might be a little harder.

Earlier, we introduced the 朝天蹬 (cháo tiān dèng), a technique where dancers stand upright, basically doing the splits, ultimately holding their legs right beside their heads. Today, we’ll try that again—but this time, no hands allowed.

Regardless of...

There’s something special about the light in the south of France. That’s where we have been lately, basking in the blue waters of the Riviera and wandering through fields of lavender in Provence. This region really is as beautiful as they say. We feel so lucky to have been there, even for a few days!

You could say we earned it, though. We put our hearts and souls into our recent performances...

Golden Eyes with Piercing Sight: Vision to separate truth from lies and good from evil.

Once long ago, there was a stone atop a mountain that had absorbed the essence of Heaven and Earth. From this stone was born the Monkey King. The Monkey King could speak at birth. He drank water from a spring when he was thirsty and ate fruit when he...
