Chinese dance troup returns to Utah

Shen Yun, a professional troupe of classical Chinese dancers, acrobats and musicians is making a repeat performance this March in Utah.

Shows are scheduled for March 4 & 5 2014 at the Val A. Browning Center in Ogden. You can find more information and ticket prices here.

The performance is billed as a family-oriented spectacle featuring “heavenly music” and “timeless legends. ” But the troupe and its ties to the Falun Gong, a religious sect suppressed by Communist rule, has skirted controversy in some parts of the country.

Here are some reviews of past performances:
“The politics behind the pageantry”
“Proselytizing mixed with fun”
