The Golden Dragon Acrobats represent the best of a time honored tradition that began more than twenty-five centuries ago. The Golden Dragons are recognized throughout the United States and abroad as the premiere Chinese acrobatic touring company of today.
The company hails from both Hebei and Henan province, in the People’s Republic of China, and has toured the United States continuously 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 their Broadway debut at the New Victory Theater in 2005, and were nominated for two most prestigious Drama Desk Awards for their performance.
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 eight with
his family’s acrobatic school in Taipei, and began touring with its touring wing, the
Golden Dragon Acrobats, at age ten. 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.
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.
