Brooklyn Center for the Performing Arts at Brooklyn College continues its 60th Anniversary Season with a performance by The Golden Dragon Acrobats on Saturday, March 14, 2015 at 2pm. Tickets are $25 for adults and $12.50 for children (ages 12 and under) and can be purchased at BrooklynCenter.org or by calling the box office at 718-951-4500 (Tue-Sat, 1pm-6pm).

The Golden Dragon Acrobats hail from Hebei and Henan province, in the People's Republic of China, and have toured the United States continuously since 1978. Being the only Chinese acrobatic company touring year-round in the United States, its members are athletes, actors, and artists who have studied and trained for their craft since early childhood. The group averages 200 performances each year and has toured through all 50 states and in over 65 countries across the world. In 2005, their Broadway debut and seven-week run at the New Victory Theater earned two prestigious New York Drama Desk Award nominations (for Best Choreography and Most Unique Theatrical Experience).

The reputation of the company is solidly rooted in a commitment to the highest of production values and an attention to artistic details that is unparalleled in the art form. World renowned impresario Danny Chang and choreographer Angela Chang combine award-winning acrobatics, traditional dance, spectacular costumes, ancient and contemporary music and theatrical techniques to present a show of breathtaking skill and spellbinding beauty.

The group's founder, producer, and artistic director, Danny Chang, is one of the world's leading promoters of Chinese acrobatics. He began his training at the age of eight with his family's acrobatic school in Taipei, and joined its touring wing, The Golden Dragon Acrobats, at age ten. He is the recipient of many awards, including the prestigious Medal for International Faith and Goodwill by the Republic of China's Coordination Council for North American Affairs. In 1998, Chang restructured The Golden Dragon Acrobats to form Asian Artists Productions, Inc. (AAPI). While the new company continued to produce and tour The Golden Dragon Acrobats, AAPI expanded to create theatrically elaborate shows like Circo Magnifico, Dream, Pagoda, Cirque D'or, Cirque Ziva, and others, each for a specific US market.
