Many in the West have been fascinated by China's long history and rich culture. For 5,000 years, Chinese values were shaped by a diverse legacy of heroes and myths, and these stories still resonate today. With our increasingly interconnected world, understanding the true China has never been more intriguing and important. Inspired by Shen Yun Performing Arts, as well as years of hosting Chinese culture workshops for professionals, schools, and local communities, we have designed the Professional Development Programs on Traditional Chinese Culture. Our programs fulfill the requirements for the National Core Arts Standards and the New Jersey Student Learning Standards for Social Studies, and are endorsed by the New Jersey Education Association (NJEA). Shen Yun Promotions International is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization established to promote, restore and revive traditional Chinese culture. Its core goal is to foster public interest and appreciation in classical Chinese dance and other traditional performing art forms in society.
