It is one of the best acrobatic troupes in China with over one hundred acrobatic, magical and martial arts performers. With novelty and superior techniques, the acrobatic troupe is loved by the audiences all over the world.

  1. I have four children, all with wonderful talents. My oldest daughter is a competitive dancer at the high school. My son does traveling soccer competitively, my youngest daughter is beginning her career and dance. And my newborn son, well, we will have to wait-and-see!

  2. My oldest is double jointed, so it makes for some very interesting movements and body shapes. My youngest really thinks he’s a dancer!

  3. My 12-year old daughter has artistic abilities that really blow me away. I really hope she continues to find avenues to express this talent as she does through school.

  4. I’ve got 3 kids. My daughter’s amazing talent is organizational skills, which she did NOT inherit from me! My older son makes silly voices. My younger son tells stories! All 3 would love this show!

  5. My youngest is 13 and he has an incredibly calming presence. He can instantly alter the emotions of people which sounds really strange but he just has this gift for diffusing emotional situations. I see crisis negotiation in his future.

  6. My oldest girl is talented at school, music, art , organizing and most of all being kind and empathetic. The middle onem a boy is great at making people laugh and being sweet to the little one- most of the time. The three year old girl is talented at remembering things.

  7. I have 2 daughters! Oldest can play piano and trumpet beautifully! Youngest is an amazing dancer!!!

  8. I am blessed with 2 beautiful girls. My oldest loves to sing and does so every Sunday at Praise and Worship. My youngest is learning how to play the piano and is a natural at it.

  9. My son can scale walls and door frames. Maybe this show could inspire him to channel all that strength in a positive way!

  10. My daughter’s talent is that’s she’s wise beyond her years in so many ways, understands concepts and is empathetic to others’ when most children her age are not in tune with that yet. She still is very childlike in many ways, but she always surprises us with her logic.

  11. My son builds crazy vehicles out of legos and amazing structures out of blocks! Love to see what he comes up with!

  12. My daughter loves to practice ballet. She’s four, so who knows if it will still be her thing in two months, but we have a lot of fun pointing toes and saying tendue over and over again! My six month old is happy chewing. It takes a lot of dedication, but he’s willing to put in the hours to get it right! 🙂

  13. My baby is gone now, but her most amazing talent was making every person that ever laid eyes on her have a brighter day and being the most amazing fighter I have ever seen in my entire life!

  14. My kids have the same talents as me. Somehow managing to find every corner to stub a toe and tripping over our own feet. We’re about as graceful as a cat coming off of anesthesia. Hahaha. But that gives us our real super human abilities. We can laugh at ourselves, pick ourselves up, and keep going.
    One can make sound effects like a pro, one can read at an above human reading level, one cares with the love I’ve rarely seen in another person, and one is a very good artist.

  15. I have five kids, and love that they each have their own unique talents! Everything from doing the splits, to reading huge books in a couple of day, to knowing just when someone needs a hug!

  16. My child doesn’t have “amazing” talents, but he’s funny, he’s an ok baseball player, he’s a good student, and he’s just a sweet kiddo, and I love him to pieces. 🙂

  17. I’m free that night!!!! My husband wonders how I know everything that’s going on around here. I told him that this website is amazing. Only problem is I keep our calendar FULL! And he tolerates it because he loves me! Lol! My 7 year old is amazing at building LEGO sets way beyond his years and has been since he was 5. My younger son is 5 and is a very athletic. My baby girl is 11 months and we have nicknamed her Houdini! She is an escape artist! She is so strong and since she was walking at 10 months there’s no holding her back. She can climb out of or over anything! Eeekkk!
