Polonaise is a solemn dance that originated in the sixteenth century. Developed into the 19th century, it was characterized by the repeated use of short and dynamic rhythmic motives. The Polonaise of the Russian Empire is music used for ceremonial occasions and has a marching character, which is different from Chopin’s piano Polonaise, which uses a high degree of performance. Less than a year after the premiere of “Evgeny Onegin” in 1879, Liszt admired the polonaise and arranged it into a virtuoso for piano.

About Shen Yun Performing Arts
New York-based Shen Yun Performing Arts is the world‘s premier Chinese classical dance and classical music troupe. Over the years, Shen Yun has absorbed and cultivated many of the world‘s top artists, revitalizing and promoting the real, almost vanished traditional Chinese culture in the form of classical art.
From the ancient times of the Three Sovereigns and Five Emperors to the magnificent Tang Dynasty, from the prosperity of the Song Dynasty to the elegance of the Qing Dynasty, the five thousand years of Chinese civilization has a long history. This is a picture full of myths and legends and heroic epics – courage and sacrifice, integrity and loyalty, kindness and virtue, the story of the stars and the inheritance of five thousand civilizations.
In ancient China, it was called “Shenzhou”, and people and gods used to be together on this land. Music, medicine, calligraphy, clothing, characters… God has passed on the rich culture to the people here. For thousands of years, the beliefs of Confucianism, Buddhism and Taoism have been the foundation of society. The Son of Heaven rules according to Heaven, and the people respect Heaven, believe in God, and value virtue and do good deeds.
Over the past few decades, the CCP regime has regarded the traditional culture of reverence for the heavens and virtue as a threat to its existence, and through political movements such as the Cultural Revolution, the traditional beliefs have been systematically uprooted and the legacy of five thousand years of divinely-inherited culture has been eliminated. Nearly destroyed.
In 2006, a group of top Chinese traditional artists came to New York with the same desire: to revive the true Chinese divine culture and promote it all over the world. And just like that, Shen Yun was born.
Every season, we present a new set of programs in top theaters around the world, such as Lincoln Center in New York, Kennedy Center in Washington DC, London Coliseum; our Symphony Orchestra has performed at Carnegie Hall.
Millions of live audience members, including the best-known actors, top fashion designers, government officials, royals, and celebrities have all attended Shen Yun’s pomp. We look forward to seeing you too.
