The world-famous Golden Dragon Chinese Acrobats will perform at the Chapman Cultural Center on Friday, Feb. 4, at 7 p.m.

The Golden Dragon Acrobats represent the best of a time-honored tradition that began more than 25 centuries ago. They are recognized throughout the United States and abroad as the premiere Chinese acrobatic touring company of today.

Lien Chi Chang officially established the Chinese Golden Dragon Acrobats in 1967 with his family whose member included Danny Chang, his sister, and other students.

For more than 30 years, the Acrobats have continuously toured in the United States. With the company’s main office based in Dallas, Tx., the Golden Dragons have traveled around the world to all 50 states and to over 65 countries on five continents. The members of the current touring company, hailing from Hebei, China, have performed to sold-out audiences in nearly every major market in the country.
