At the core of Shen Yun's perfromances is classical Chinese dance with its explosive techniques, synchronized movements, enchanting elegance, and expressive powers. China's numerous ethnic and folk dance styles round out the show. In a collection of short pieces, audiences travel from the Hi Malayas to tropical lake-filled regions; from the legends of the culture's creation over 5,000 years ago to contemporary tales of courage; from the highest heavens down to the dusty plateaus of the Middle Kingdom. Shen Yun's one-of-a-kind orchestra, with its all-original compositions, blends East and West like no other. The distinctively Chinese sound of ancient instruments are bathed in a rich sea of western strings, percussion, woodwinds, and brass, producing one fresh, unexpected sound. Animated backdrops transport the audience to another world. Projected behind the dancers, the hi-tech images lift the stage and set it amidst blossoming landscapes, deep forests, prairies, or celestial paradises.
