  • Golden Dragon Acrobats return to LA

    China’s Golden Dragon Acrobats return to the Duane Smith Auditorium as a fundraiser for the 2013 Gordons’ Summer Concert Series at 7:30 p.m. Saturday. 

    The discovery of acrobatics goes back at least 4,000 years in China. During the Han Dynasty (221BC-220AD), it was known as the “hundred plays.” 

    It has transformed into various forms of ancient performance art: dance, opera, martial arts, contortion, balancing and sports. It’s a treasure of traditional Chinese art.

    The Golden Dragon Acrobats represent this time-honored tradition. This production company has won many awards since first being established in 1967.

    The show features acrobatics, traditional dance, music, contortionists and jugglers.
