IMPORTANT MESSAGE ABOUT THIS TRIP
A few guests have raised concerns about this trip in light of the coronavirus and the perception that the performers are from China. This is an understandable concern, however, the performers from Shen Yun are of Chinese descent. They do NOT live in China. The Shen Yun performance is based on a lost heritage of dance, lost because it was banned in China. The Shen Yun company is based in the U.S., with headquarters in New York. This is a statement made by Shen Yun:
“Performers have not been to China in years, have not had recent direct contact with people from China, and in fact Shen Yun is not even allowed to perform in China ... having been blacklisted by the Chinese government,” the statement said. “Audience members can enjoy Shen Yun performances resting assured that Shen Yun and its performers have been isolated from today’s China.”
