Shen Yun to Showcase Lost Techniques of Classic Chinese Dance in Video Premiere

Shen Yun Performing Arts will showcase lost techniques of classic Chinese dance in a video premiere at 8:00 p.m. ET on Monday, May 31.

The premiere video can be preordered online at:

Classical Chinese dance, martial arts, and operatic dance have similar movements and postures, also known as shen-fa in Chinese, which have been passed down for thousands of years, according to an introduction on the Shen Yun Creations website, a newly launched on-demand video streaming platform by Shen Yun.

The highest achievement of shen-fa is shen-dai-shou (the body leads the arms). However, no one knew how to do it or even truly understood how to apply it before Mr. D.F., the founder and Artistic and Creative Director of Shen Yun Performing Arts, imparted this method.

“Shen-dai-shou is also a method that has been persistently sought after by all kinds of dance forms and physical performing arts. It is a dance technique that people have been searching for since ancient times, something people have talked about but no one can do—it is the highest realm of artistic expression through physical movement. The founder, Artistic and Creative Director of Shen Yun Performing Arts, Mr. D.F., is the one who imparted this method. Shen-fa, moreover, also has the even better method of ‘kua-dai-tui’ (the hips lead the legs), which modern people have not even heard about—an entirely lost art form. Having benefited from Mr. D.F.’s personal instruction in this method, Shen Yun now presents it to the public,” reads the introduction.

People can watch more Shen Yun dance showcase videos, Shen Yun Symphony Orchestra concerts, vocal music, dance instructional videos, concertos, and more never-before-published content on ShenYunCreations.
