Shen Yun

My boss invited me to attend a show with her last night in downtown Portland called Shen Yun. Promotionally it had been advertised all over TV for the past few months and while it looked interesting, I would never have attended on my own. When she invited me, however, I jumped at the chance. Shen Yun is a combination of ancient Chinese traditional and folk dancing, mixed with ballet, gymnastics and live orchestration. While there did seem to be an anti-communist and religious agenda involved, the costumes and production value of this show made it worth the 2.5 hour investment.
