For the last thirty two years, The Peking Acrobats have redefined audience perceptions of Chinese acrobatics. They perform daring maneuvers atop a precarious pagoda of chairs and display their technical prowess at trick-cycling, precision tumbling, juggling, somersaulting, and gymnastics. They push the limits of human ability, defying gravity with amazing displays of contortion, flexibility, and control, often accompanied by live musicians who skillfully play traditional Chinese instruments. The Peking Acrobats are part of a time-honored Chinese tradition, rooted in centuries of Chinese history and folk art. They seek to uphold this rich and ancient folk art tradition, bringing it to new technical heights while integrating twenty-first century technology.
Since their founding in 1986, THE PEKING ACROBATS have been featured on numerous television shows and star-studded TV specials. These include Nickelodeon’s Unfabulous, Ellen’s Really Big Show, The Wayne Brady Show, That’s Incredible, ABC's Wide World of Sports, and NBC's Ring In The New Year Holiday Special. The Peking Acrobats set the world record for the human chair stack on FOX Network's Guinness Book Primetime.
