“The impossible can be achieved, and once achieved surpassed, then surpassed again.”- AP Associated Press
“The performers show just why they’re world-famous.” – New York Post
“The acrobats are almost too perfect.” – Newsday

“The Golden Dragons present a well-paced sampler of a highly stylized art form . . . There is a precision and beauty about everything these performers do.” — The Washington Post

“The Golden Dragon Acrobats have arrived! Men climb high up tall poles and jump between them to the sound of drums. A woman in a shining gray python-colored body stocking balances a lamp as she twists upside down on a pedestal, her body bending like cooling taffy so that it is hard to see where her limbs begin and end. Paper umbrellas twirl effortlessly, held by a pair of upturned, kneading feet; plates spin three at a time atop long, slender sticks; and a man juggles balls at the top of a three-man pyramid, effortlessly dropping down to the ground afterwards to screams from the audience.” -New York Times
