Chinese Golden Dragon Acrobats Showcase At NFCC Jan. 18Jan 11th, 2011 | By Submitted | Category: Community News
The North Florida Community College Artist Series presents The Golden Dragon Acrobats on Tuesday, Jan. 18 at NFCC’s Van H. Priest Auditorium. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. Show begins at 7 p.m.
The Golden Dragon Acrobats represent the best of a time honored tradition that began more than 25 centuries ago. 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 Golden Dragons are recognized throughout the United States and abroad as the premiere Chinese acrobatic touring company of today. In November 2005, the Golden Dragon Acrobats made their Broadway debut to a sold out audience at the New Victory Theater, New York’s ultimate theater for kids and families.
Their Broadway run over the next six weeks led to adoration and standing ovations from audiences of all ages and universal critical acclaim from the New York press.
The company “delivers beautifully choreographed routines showcasing their amazing skill and physicality, accompanied by a musical score of traditional Chinese music filtered through a New Age sensibility.” (The New York Post).
Tickets are on sale now at the NFCC College Advancement Office (Bldg. 32, NFCC campus) or by calling (850) 973-1653.
