The Golden Dragon Acrobats – a fast-paced, technically innovative and talented group – perform at 2:30 p.m. Sunday, May 19, at the Auburn Performing Arts Center, part of the city’s Bravo Performing Art Series.

The program was rescheduled after a regional snowstorm canceled the orginal Feb. 9 performance.

The acrobats represent 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, costumes, ancient and contemporary music and theatrical techniques to present a show of skill and beauty.

The Golden Dragon Acrobats are recognized throughout the United States and abroad as one of the premiere Chinese acrobatic touring companys of today. They hail from Cangzhou, Hebei province, in the People’s Republic of China and have toured the United States continuously since 1978. Its 25 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 more than 65 countries throughout the world.

Tickets are $28 for adults, $24 for students and seniors and $20 for youth.
