Shen Yun Performing Arts will be back in Louisville, Kentucky, on Oct. 9 for another two performances of spectacular music and dance.

New York-based Shen Yun aims to revive the resplendent 5,000 years of Chinese civilization. The cultural sensation has been welcomed with a number of proclamations from the Bluegrass State, from both Kentucky state and Louisville City officials.

The House of Representatives of the Commonwealth of Kentucky issued a Citation of Celebration to Shen Yun. Their message read, “Inasmuch as Shen Yun Performing Arts offers the opportunity for audiences to experience an extraordinary performance by world-renowned musicians, dancers, and artists, the members of the Kentucky House of Representatives are pleased to join with Representative Joni Jenkins and Representative Derrick W. Graham in offering this celebrated troupe sincere commendation and gratitude.”

The Mayor of Louisville, Greg Fischer, wrote a letter of greeting to Shen Yun, saying “With Shen Yun’s powerful storytelling, and captivating performances, I know that all who attend will experience a show rich in history and art. We’re excited to have you here and we wish you all the success in your performances.”
