The Golden Dragon Acrobats, recognized throughout the world as the premier Chinese acrobatic touring company of today, returns to the Lakewood Cultural Center at 1 p.m. and 5 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 25. The Golden Dragon Acrobats represent the best of a time-honored tradition that is steadfastly committed to presenting the best in traditional dance, costume and breathtaking acrobatic skill.

The company originated in China’s Hebei and Henan provinces and has toured the United States continually since 1978. Its 29 members are athletes, actors and artists who have studied and trained for their craft since early childhood. The group has performed in all 50 states and in over 65 countries across the world. The Golden Dragons had its Broadway debut at the New Victory Theater in 2005 and were nominated for two of the most prestigious Drama Desk Awards.

The company's founder, producer and director, Danny Chang, is one of the world's leading promoters of Chinese acrobatics. He began his training at the age of 8 at his family's acrobatic school in Taipei and began touring with the Golden Dragon Acrobats at age 10. He is the recipient of many awards, including the esteemed Medal for International Faith and Goodwill by the Republic of China's Coordination Council for North American Affairs.

Danny Chang along with choreographer Angela Chang combine award-winning acrobatics, traditional dance, spectacular costumes, ancient and contemporary music and theatrical techniques to present a show of spellbinding beauty.

Tickets, beginning at $20, at www.Lakewood.org/LCCPresents, 303-987-7845 or the Box Office, 470 S. Allison Parkway (Wadsworth and West Alameda Avenue).
