Dont like communist culture. Reply Peaceandtruth December 31, 2016 I see a lot of videos to the right that purport to be Classical Chinese Dance. Sadly they are not, one can see that only in Shen Yun. The true home of traditional Chinese culture and civilisation Reply Diane Swanson February 12, 2017 So beautiful and inspiring – even watching this I can connect to the beauty and purity communicated by these remarkable dancers – would dearly love to see a live Shen Yun performance. Reply Joao Butoh April 15, 2017 I loved, I hope that one day I can see this work in person, and I can study a little. Thanks for sharing this video. Reply An Leng Uy April 2, 2018 ART form!!

The narration is very interesting. I grew up with a strong fondness for classical Chinese culture. The females so feminine, and yet the men definitely masculine too. I think this is my favourite dance, such skill, expression, hard work, passion, art, grace…. it’s mesmerising, could watch for hours 😊 thank you In a world that has become so vulgar, it’s wonderful to still have this. There is love in all these moves 😊🙏 Reply Hui Wen December 10, 2019 Supported by us Reply Anet Birungi December 13, 2019 I'm from Uganda and I love shen yun a lot and I wish you guys could come and perform here one day I really really love shen yun Reply nate mani December 14, 2019 How’s I bye the ticket for 2020 where ? Reply Steve Misosky December 23, 2019 It's sad that the communists want to destroy history. Such beauty would be lost. Reply marbanak December 24, 2019 1:26 Whoa! I thought, for the longest time, that the Cossack dancers of eastern Europe were the original break dancers. I am beginning to think I am wrong. Reply Spiritual Entrepreneurs December 27, 2019 The limitations happen when a culture of people believes that it is only their own people who carry similar values and ways of expression. Humans have created a gap and separation amongst each other in the name of whatever it is they're trying to promote, be it dance or cultural ideals.. ..and this comes with limitations. It amazes me how simple the answers to humanity's problems are, yet my observations prove that much of humanity is disconnected from nature, its herbal medicines, and disconnected from each other. This is what is going on around the world…traditional dance and many things today contain beauty… yet beauty is also in the eye of the beholder….. Why is it that certain world cultures and its influencers only think of themselves or their own people? Why are we still going around limiting ourselves to our ancient stories? What our ancestors have shown us is indeed beautiful but not something to be used to create limitations… Today's humanity has this attitude of belonging to a certain clique…. none of the ascended masters Buddha, Shiva, Yeshua, Thoth, etc none of these ascended masters lived that way…these masters always made love their number one priority along with the wisdom they contained…. Chinese classical dance is beautiful yet Chinese aren't the only ones capable of such movements and other things…the same for Yogis of India who think that only a person from India knows yoga and is somehow "BETTER SUITED" to show it….this is in other parts of the world tooo…. this is one of the many problems of both East and West…. Until humanity gives up its barriers of freedom and expression and learn to embrace each other for their talents while sharing the stories of each other and our ancestors… until this happens there will always be obstacles….. Buddha and other ascended masters ALWAYS embraced others and made sure ALL WERE WELCOME TO JOIN Not only that but humanity must strengthen its own connection to nature and it's healing medicines. IN SUMMARY CULTURE HAS BEAUTY….yet culture also creates limitations. Until humans learn how to share and expand their connections to each other… there will always be obstacles….. I hope to one day see you all in person I missed 2019s performance.. yet i'll do my best to make it happen again… Reply ExpandMyLife December 28, 2019 We attended the show at NAC in Ottawa last week, the dancing and music were amazing. the constant interruptions from the "narrating hosts" took away from the overall experience. It gave it a feeling of an amateur recital "and next, Mrs. Black's grade six class will perform blah blah blah". The lighting of the "narrating hosts" then the clapping for the hosts after each dance introduction ruined the experience for me and others in attendance. During the aria (the words were up on the screen so we could follow along in our preferred language) the same could have been accomplished in lieu of the "narrating hosts" this would have made for a magical experience. Reply Jason McBeavis December 30, 2019 True fact. The Europeans learned ballet from the ancient Chinese. And gymnastics. Reply Mytho.ishere Martinez December 31, 2019 Why does the cover look like Eugene yang from there try guys Reply Đỗ Thị Kim Loan January 1, 2020 Great ! Reply Autumn Chen January 3, 2020 Starting from 0:31, the background music playing is called Dedu, i think it was a cover played by a zither. Please correct me if i'm wrong! Reply Nelsy Capote January 4, 2020 Historical authentic Culture each nation has, should be valued and respected. Globalist want us to melt into one people. Yes we are all one humanity. But like the many beautiful flowers the divine has created. We have an identity that expresses how unique we are. Watching this Chinese dance I appreciate the talent, the dedication to perfection. Truly inspiring. Reply Jack Frost January 6, 2020 Shen Yun, gift from God Above, of near perfection on earth. Thank you. Reply THUONG PHAN January 8, 2020 From trung quoc khong kiem duyet 1 like Reply Ruth Fitzwater January 9, 2020 Much respect and admiration for all those dedicated to preserving such beauty. Reply vivian jiang January 10, 2020 I like to be a dancer Reply super Robbie and Super Lylah January 13, 2020 BEAUTIFUL!!! Reply James Gleeson January 14, 2020 Great at a dance. Yet its time China fixed its environment and relations with its neighbors, so disappointing of a culture who should really know better, Military buildup, ethnic cleansing, unfair trading, creating a society of fear within and out/ Sry China but you are committing crimes to humanity and the gods will and history will condemn for evermore Reply Lois Garman January 18, 2020 Amazing, beautiful, thrilling. Please keep Chinese traditional dance alive. Reply Teri Hall January 18, 2020 Thank you for bringing us this gift. It is both a blessing, and an honor to see such beauty, and passion in such a creative form. I'm astounded by the amount of dedication, time, and perseverance it takes to reach such a level of true traditional Shen Yun. I can't even finish a single video without crying!! I'm actually still quite shocked that just watching these beautiful people and holistic art brought so much emotion from me. It's Astoundingly beautiful. Graceful, elegant and noble. It's pure, and light, and absolutely of Heaven. I pray this gift from your Culture is never lost. It's importance is invaluable, and obviously, it is going to be presented by only the truest of hearts. Thank you to your young ones, for keeping the path, and thank you to the Elderly, for continuing this beautiful, peaceful, and divine art. I honestly feel like I have just witnessed a true prayer in motion, instead of words!! Just Amazing. There are just no words available to capture, encompass, and reflect what I witnessed. I would LOVE to see this in person. I'm trying to find a schedule or?? I see you were in Phoenix a year ago. Will you be back? Also, what can be done to support and preserve this gift? Wow, a million Thank you's! Best wishes <3 Reply VỀ NHÀ January 18, 2020 法輪大法好，真 善忍好 Reply Add a Comment Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
