Transcript Chinese Acrobats Jar juggling, ribbon dancing and a pagoda of chairs were just a few of the acts spectators were treated to when the Chinese Golden Dragon Acrobats and Magicians of Taipei appeared in Cullen Auditorium in November. The troupe is made up of the most distinguished family Chinese performers today, the Changs. They have performed on numerous television shows, including Merv Griffin, Dinah Shore and That's Incredible. The company is headed by Danny Chang, oldest son of Len Chi who started the family troupe and also heads the Tiwanese National School of Acrobats, known as the Fu-Hsin school. Three brothers, Yu Ching, Ko Jen, and Yu Lung, and two sisters, Chun Mei and Mei Yu, carry on the twenty year family tradition, along with 15 other acrobats and magicians. Chinese acrobatics is far more than a series of stunts. It is an ancient and intergral part of Chinese culture and based on a desire to find a perfect harmony between mind and body, thus achieving perfection. To be chosen as an acrobat in China is a big honor, said Gloria Kong, president of the Chinese Student Association, the organization that sponsered the show. And UH was certainly honored by their performance. —Deanna Rodriguez Audiences were astounded as a member of the troupe balanced himself and seven chairs all atop four fragile wine bottles.
