The Golden Dragon Acrobats, a troupe of China's most gifted tumblers, contortionists, jugglers, cyclists and gymnasts, will bring their country's 2,500-year-old tradition of acrobatics back to the College of Lake County after an eight-year absence.

The performance takes place at 7 p.m. Saturday, March 2, at the James Lumber Center for the Performing Arts.

Accompanied by ancient and contemporary music, the multitalented troupe combines award-winning acrobatics, precision tumbling, traditional dance and breathtaking routines, including daring maneuvers atop a precarious tower of chairs.

Since 1985, the Golden Dragon Acrobats have toured North America continuously, performing in all 50 U.S. states and at prestigious venues, including the Washington, D.C.-based Ford's Theatre and the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts.
