Shen Yun is a classical Chinese dance extravaganza that seems to be all about twirling sleeves and hypnotic music.

But the long-running show is actually a story about the struggle of China's controversial Falun Gong spiritual practice.

The Shen Yun performance group's mission is to raise funds and tell the mostly unknown story of Falun Gong, which the Communist Party tried to eradicate in 1999.

But whether or not you care about its politics, Shen Yun puts on bright and lively dance spectacles and continues to do so for its 2019 tour.

Catch Shen Yun Feb. 7 through 17 at the California Center for the Arts, Escondido.

Dates and times of events are subject to change without notice. Always check the event organizer's website for the most updated schedule before attending.
