What’s in the Shen Yun logo?
  Shen Yun Logo  
The dancer in our logo is performing the zi jin guan jump wielding long silk ribbons.
Zi jin guan (literally “purple-gold crown”) is an essential technique for female classical Chinese dancers. This is a back leg kick that requires a fusion of flexibility, strength, and coordination. This technique is performed in an explosive instant midair.
The long ribbon is a dance prop dating back at least to the Han Dynasty (206 B.C.E.–220 C.E.). These colorful silks of various lengths elongate the dancer’s movements. Masterly executed, they create exquisite fluid patterns like spirals, waves, and more.
