The story is told through Kung Fu, dance and acrobatic stunts, and is a fusion of modern dance and Chinese traditional arts.

Beijing - Acrobatic Show

The Chaoyang Acrobat Show is in our opinion one of the best shows to see while on tour in China. It appeals to all ages, from young children to adults. It is very visual and the show is not made of “tricks” but is feats of skill and fitness. It is comparable to many international Cirque style shows but at a price much lower and an opportunity to sit much closer. Having seen all the acrobat shows in Beijing and Shanghai, we consider this one to be the best of the lot.
