Boise State University's Velma V. Morrison Center for the Performing Arts announced its first community event as a Cultural Ambassador for the City of Boise. With a two-year term, the Center will act as one of Boise's honorary representatives to the world. The City of Boise Cultural Ambassador program is designed to share Boise's cultural and creative community with other cities across the globe and foster connection to global audiences. Acting as one of Boise's honorary representatives to the world, the Cultural Ambassador engages with national and international audiences through the public expression of culture that helps develop, document, research, share, or reflect upon Boise's culture and help make Boise the most livable city in the country. The Golden Dragon Acrobats is the first official event for the Morrison Center under their aegis as a Cultural Ambassador for the City of Boise.
The Golden Dragon Acrobats represent the best of a time-honored tradition that began more than 25 centuries ago. The company's reputation is solidly rooted in a commitment to the highest of production values and an attention to artistic details that is unparalleled in the art form. World-renowned impresario Danny Chang and choreographer Angela Chang combine award-winning acrobatics, traditional dance, spectacular costumes, ancient and contemporary music and theatrical techniques to present a show of breathtaking skill and beauty.
The ancient art of acrobatics has developed into one of China's most popular art forms. As well as evolving into many forms of performance - dance, opera, martial arts and sports - acrobatics has served an important role in the cultural exchange between China and Western nations. The citizens of China continue to present their acrobatic art for the world today, to portray their hard-working nature and set forth an example of the rich traditions of Chinese culture.
