Enjoy a journey back in time through music and dance. Go see “Shen Yun” this weekend at the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre.

This extraordinary journey in music and dance takes its audience across 5,000 years of Chinese civilization capturing the spirit of traditional Chinese culture and its beliefs. Classically trained dancers, an orchestra that melds East and West, and amazing animated backdrops bridge past to present.

“Through the universal language of music and dance, Shen Yun weaves a wondrous tapestry of heavenly realms, ancient legends, and modern heroic tales, taking you on a journey through 5,000 years of Chinese culture,” according to shenyun.com.

Shen Yun was started in 2006 when leading classical Chinese artists met in New York for the purposes of reviving and sharing the “true, divinely inspired” Chinese culture. Shen Yun is a non-profit that enjoys its artistic freedom out of New York.
