One of the world’s preeminent acrobatic companies comes to the Hylton Center to thrill young and old alike with their athletic skill, daring feats, and artistry. Founded more than six decades ago, The National Acrobats of the People’s Republic of China has toured the world with one-of-a-kind acrobatic acts, receiving widespread acclaim and countless awards. Audiences gasp and cheer when these highly skilled acrobats perform their jaw-dropping feats based on traditions dating back thousands of years. Tumbling, juggling, contortion, and balancing acts are all performed to a combination of traditional and modern music, along with colorful, imaginative props and sets, making this a thrilling experience for the whole family. “Performers move through a series of dizzying acts of physical virtuosity.” (Centre Daily Times)
