Those intending to see the Golden Dragon Acrobats tonight, Friday, March 3, at Yavapai College’s Performing Arts Center should brace themselves for a thrilling experience.

Continuing an age-old tradition of entertainment, the Golden Dragon Acrobats is a premier Chinese acrobatic touring company that performs all over the U.S.

World-renowned impresario Danny Chang and choreographer Angela Chang combine award-winning acrobatics, traditional dance, eye-grabbing costumes, ancient and contemporary music and theatrical techniques to present a show of breathtaking skill and beauty, according to a press release.

Randy Williamson, the company’s technical director, said this version of the show includes just about everything one can imagine outside of flying acts.

“There’s a lot of energy from the performers,” Williamson said. “[Audience members] are going to see some really cool acrobatic tumbling, jugglers, balancing; things like that.”

One unique aspect of the show Williamson said to look for are the smooth transitions.

“I hate to use the term, but it has a Cirque du Soleil feel in the way that it moves from piece to piece,” Williamson said. “It has a very fluid motion.”

The show’s acclaim has won the company two Drama Desk nominations and two trips to Broadway.

Michael Grady, marketing specialist for Yavapai College, said this is an exceptionally popular show.

“They have a crowd-pleasing blend of pageantry and athleticism that creates great word-of-mouth,” Grady said.

This is the seventh time the performance has passed through the Performing Arts Center.
