The Golden Dragon Acrobats represent the best of a time honored tradition that began more than twenty-five centuries ago. Recognized throughout the United States and abroad as the premiere Chinese acrobatic touring company of today, the Golden Dragon Acrobats combine award-winning acrobatics, traditional dance, spectacular costumes, ancient and contemporary music and theatrical techniques to present a show of breathtaking skill and spellbinding beauty.
The company hails from the Hebei and Henan provinces of the People’s Republic of China and has toured the United States continuously since 1978. Its 29 members are comprised of athletes, actors and artists who have studied and trained for their craft since early childhood.
The company’s founder, producer and director, Danny Chang, is one of the world’s leading promoters of Chinese acrobatics. He began his training at the age of eight with his family’s acrobatic school in Taipei, and began touring with its touring wing, the Golden Dragon Acrobats, at age ten. He is the recipient of many awards, including the esteemed Medal for International Faith and Goodwill by the Republic of China’s Coordination Council for North American Affairs.
Within the last four years, the Golden Dragon Acrobats have performed in all lower 48 states of the country—to sold-out audiences in nearly every major market in the U.S. In 2005, the acrobats had the opportunity to perform a six week run on Broadway in New York City, in which the group received adoration, standing ovations, and praise from the New York press. The response of viewers seeing the acrobats for the first time is nothing short of overwhelming. After previously hosting them here in Columbus, Ohio, we are excited to present this jaw dropping performance for your enjoyment once again!
