Golden Dragon Acrobats

The Golden Dragon Acrobats, hosted by Miller Outdoor Theatre, led by impresario Danny Chang and choreographer Angela Chang, are considered one of the world’s premier Chinese acrobatic touring companies, their Broadway performances earning them New York Drama Desk Award nominations. Utilizing a combination of ''acrobatics, traditional dance, authentic costumes, ancient and contemporary music, and theatrical techniques,'' the athletes pay homage to a performing arts tradition that has spanned more than 25 centuries. Expect to see the acrobats balancing cumbersome objects and each other while high atop towering ladders; spinning plates and umbrellas; jumping through multiple hoops; and pedaling a bicycle with myriad passengers.
