Trumbull resident Alec Cheng, event coordinator at the state

Chinese Culture Association, is co-hosting a production of Shen Yun, a celebration of 5,000 years of Chinese culture through music and dance. The show runs now through April 22 at the David Koch Theater at Lincoln Center.

Shen Yun’s program features traditional Chinese culture as it was meant to be; a beautiful blend of artistry, energy, and grace. Each year boasts a brand new show, with dozens of dancers in dazzling costumes move in seamless, flowing patterns.

Cate Blanchett has called Shen Yun “exquisitely beautiful.” Joy Behar declared it “fantastic!” During shows in London, Her Royal Highness Princess Michael of Kent said she was “completely enchanted.” From the San Francisco Opera House to the Kennedy Center in Washington DC to the London Coliseum, Shen Yun tours each year to 100 cities across four continents.
