These dancers, known for their impossible flips and aerial tumbling techniques, look as if they might be capable of flight—so certainly they need clothes they can move in. Shen Yun Performing Arts is the world’s premier classical Chinese dance company, home to the world’s top dancers trained in this art. And now the same people who design the activewear these dancers use have launched Shen Yun Dancer.
The new brand includes activewear and casual wear, for men, women, and children.
The clothing is fitted but not entirely form-revealing; it’s an aesthetic originally developed specifically for the company’s dancers, when nothing could be found on the market that suited their needs.
Elegance is balanced with functionality: necklines that better release heat, mesh torsos that wick moisture. The dance wear is made of organic Supima cotton and cellulose fiber, and the fabrics have four-way stretch, to keep you cool, dry, and unrestricted.
Items include tops, pants, jackets, sweaters, with prices ranging from $35 to $180. Children’s clothing is priced at $35.
It’s a company that takes aesthetic seriously. Shen Yun Performing Arts is known for its mission to revive 5,000 years of traditional Chinese culture, and with that comes a deep well of wisdom from which to draw.
As the new clothing website explains: “Clothing has always been an important part of culture. The golden eras of civilizations have often been accompanied by beautiful and noble fashions. Here at Shen Yun Dancer, we apply the venerable aesthetic principles that have withstood the test of time to make every single piece. With meticulous attention to detail, we make sure each item fits the practical needs of modern daily life.”
“As the old saying goes, ‘Form follows spirit.’ The reverse is also true. Over a decade ago, when Shen Yun first took the stage, it launched a breakthrough in performing arts. Shen Yun Dancer is now here to help bring out your best. We believe everyone has a kind and bright spot inside. At Shen Yun Dancer we want to help you make it shine.
“Together, we will usher in new standards of sartorial excellence.”
The clothing is currently only sold at ShenYunDancer.com
