Chinese Acrobats at Epcot – The Jeweled Dragon Acrobats at the China Pavilion in Epcot
Watch Chinese acrobats perform impressive feats of agility, strength, and concentration near the entrance to the China Pavilion. Don’t miss this group of amazing entertainers on your next visit to Epcot at Walt Disney World!
In China, it is customary for aspiring athletes and acrobats to begin training and preparation at a very early age. The dream is to audition and be selected to join a professional acrobat troupe. The Jeweled Dragon Acrobats are such a troupe and they have just launched a year-long engagement at Epcot, arriving directly from China. Consisting of six men and two women, all between 18 and 21 years old, the talented performers have been together as a troupe for three years.
These gifted acrobats perform five shows daily, five days a week in the China courtyard and showcase extraordinary feats of strength, agility and balance. I discovered this amazing troupe yesterday afternoon and am displaying a small gallery of snapshots to whet your appetite.
