It is down-right astonishing…it’s practically stupefying…”

                                                                                    -The Minnesota Parent

 

HISTORY OF THE ART

The history of Chinese Acrobats dates back 2,500 years. A tradition of innovation has evolved from the time of the earliest dynasties, with new and ever more daring acts constantly being developed. But certain things remain unchanged from those early days… the affected style of performing, the pure skill of the artists, and the joy the acrobats bring to their performances.

 

“…reminiscent of the acts on The Ed Sullivan Show… these

acrobats perform to entertain… Their exhibition of astonishing

balance and flexibility skills make for entertaining fare…”                                                                                                          -Laurie Tynan, Library Journal
