The ancient art of Chinese acrobatics has developed as one of the most popular art forms among the Chinese people, one that has evolved into many forms of performance — including dance, opera, martial arts and sports. The impact of Chinese acrobatics, however, goes far beyond the boundaries of performance, and serves an important role in the cultural exchange between China and Western nations.

The Golden Dragon Acrobats represent the best of a time honored tradition that began more than 25 centuries ago, and are recognized throughout the United States and abroad as the premier Chinese acrobatic touring company of today. Their reputation is solidly rooted in their attention to artistic details that are unparalleled in the art form. By combining award-winning acrobatics, theatrical techniques and traditional dance with spectacular costumes, the Golden Dragon Acrobats present a show of breathtaking skill and spellbinding beauty.
