SHEN YUN ENCHANTS ROYALS IN LONDON
The London Colliseum

Shen Yun Performing Arts performs to a packed house in The London Coliseum.

SHEN YUN WAS RECEIVED by royalty and enchanted a packed house at the London Coliseum, home of the English National Opera, on April 5. Members of the British royal family sent their best wishes to the company. Her Royal Highness Princess Michael of Kent was in attendance, expressing her deep feeling of connection with Chinese culture.

"Thank you so much for bringing Shen Yun to us here in London," said the Princess, who said she especially loves the erhu, also known as the Chinese violin. Lord Parkinson, an esteemed British politician, said, "Absolutely beautiful, very elegant, and very full of energy. I thoroughly enjoyed the whole thing."

SOLD OUT SHOWS THROUGHOUT TAIWAN

Taiwan's National Theater

Shen Yun performs in Taiwan’s most prestigious venue: the National Theater.

How do you know the best Chinese restaurant in town? Your best bet is the one that attracts ethnic Chinese people themselves. For Chinese classical dance, there is no better barometer for an authentic and exquisite feast of the senses then Taiwan, the seat of traditional Chinese culture and an Asian economic powerhouse.

Shen Yun just wrapped up a 38-show run in Taiwan, almost completely sold out. The finale was held at Taipei’s National Dr. Sun Yat-sen Memorial Hall on April 21.

"The synchronization was perfect. The musical expression matched the dancers’ movements excellently. Absolutely top-notch," said the Conductor of the Taipei Philharmonic Orchestra, Mr. Tien-chi Lin.

Timothy Wu

Shen Yun Principal Dancer

AT THE TOP of his field, Timothy Wu is among the most highly regarded Chinese classical dancers in the world and is a principal dancer for Shen Yun Performing Arts.

"Chinese classical dance has its own unique set of techniques; it has its own set of dance movements that are completely different from other dance forms," said Timothy. "It emphasizes not only your outer figure, but also what’s on the inside."

Timothy studied classical Chinese dance at Fei Tian Academy of the Arts, where his skills and technique excelled. He has been performing for large audiences in New York and internationally since 2004. In 2008 and 2010, he was a gold medalist in the men’s division of New Tang Dynasty Television’s International Chinese Classical Dance Competition.
