Embark on an extraordinary journey through ancient dynasties and heavenly realms, where legends and classic heroes spring to life. Set to dazzling animated backdrops, timeless ethnic and folk dances fill the stage with color and energy. The leaps and flips of Shen Yun’s aerial masters, thundering battle drums, and singers’ soaring voices converge in an unforgettable experience. Based in New York, Shen Yun has become a global sensation, reviving China’s 5,000 years of divinely inspired culture, once almost lost. At the production’s core is classical Chinese dance with its explosive techniques, synchronized movements, and expressive powers. Oscar-winning actress Cate Blanchett calls it "An extraordinary experience," and Donna Karan, “mesmerizing.” Shen Yun comes to Peoria Civic Center for the very first time with all-new 2015 program.
