Product Description

This riveting film on DVD, Champion Acrobats of China: Steel Silk, will delight fans of the circus, acrobatics, and sports alike with some of the world's most impressive acrobats performing the amazing routines that they have been perfecting for centuries. The Troupe dedicates years, training from childhood, to perfect their skills and develop new, even more daring feats - all displaying uninhibited grace and dazzling artistry. The very ease of their seemingly effortless performances is proof of their years of dedication and perseverance. This DVD preserves the art of Acrobatics as one of China's living treasures, and is perfect entertainment for both adults and children.

HISTORY OF THE ART
The history of Chinese Acrobats dates back 2,500 years. A tradition of innovation has evolved from the time of the earliest dynasties, with new and ever more daring acts constantly being developed. But certain things remain unchanged from those early days… the affected style of performing, the pure skill of the artists, and the joy the acrobats bring to their performances.

These acrobats are amazing. I got to see a live performance of them a number of years ago. I bought a VHS tape of them and when I saw the DVD I grabbed it. Just watching them is really amazing.
