Golden Dragons at WHBPAC


Chinese acrobats will spin, stack and toss in the air cups, saucers, parasols, tables and chairs—as well as each other—during a Friday night performance at the Westhampton Beach Performing Arts Center.

The Golden Dragon Acrobats, a Texas-based troupe of Chinese performers, will demonstrate feats of strength, balance and agility while adorned in colorful, eye-catching costumes in a fast-paced show designed for adults and children alike.

“I can guarantee that all the hands in the audience will be red from clapping,” said Bill Fegan, troupe manager for the Golden Dragons.

The show is like a circus performance, but not the kind most Americans are accustomed to, Mr. Fegan said.

The acrobats are always working on new maneuvers, but some tricks have been around for more than 2,500 years, Mr. Fegan explained. Danny Chang, the Taiwanese founder, producer and director of Golden Dragon, started the company 30 years ago, recruiting in Taiwan.

For those who’ve seen the Golden Dragons before, Mr. Fegan said that the show is always different, with new tricks being introduced and a changing cast.

For those who haven’t seen the show? “Expect amazement,” he said.
