Rooted in more than 2,000 years of history and folk tradition, acrobatics are a vital thread in the fabric of Chinese arts and culture. The Peking Acrobats are China’s finest —an elite troupe of gymnasts, jugglers, cyclists, and tumblers whose dazzling displays of flexibility, contortion, and control astound and inspire young audiences. Delicate, athletic, and entertaining, the acrobats’ remarkable feats are accompanied by a live orchestra of traditional Chinese instruments
