The Peking Acrobats®
Hailing from the People’s Republic of China, jugglers, cyclists and gymnasts bring a 2,000-year-old tradition of strength and concentration to the stage. The Peking Acrobats® mix the ancient folk art of acrobatics with the pageantry of a Chinese carnival. Don’t miss the energy and action of this amazing troupe of acrobats, plus the traditional live music accompanying the show!
