DCS Students See Chinese Acrobats

Our sixth grade students enjoyed a very special cultural experience today at the Lancaster Performing Arts Center. The Shangri-La Chinese Acrobats are a high-energy attraction and have performed for thousands of students and at performing arts centers around the country. Under the direction of Chinese acrobatic legends, the Hai Family, the company flawlessly interprets the precision and grace of an art form honed by years of training and discipline. Their multi-faceted and multi-cultural production features dazzling acrobatic displays, formidable feats of daring and balance, explosive Kung Fu, brilliant costumes, and even a touch of Chinese comedy. This renowned acrobat troupe has received the Performing Arts Campus Entertainment Award by the National Association for Campus Activities. This group has also had the honor of performing at the USA Olympic Swim Team’s Golden Goggles Gala.

Gaining an appreciation and understanding of the arts is an integral part of a child’s education. Our sixth grade students will remember this performance for years to come.
