The troupe was established by the People's Republic of China in 1951, and has an athletic repertoire that millions of people from more than 40 nations have experienced. At the company's Beijing home base and training center, more than 150 resident performers and 500 students of all ages train constantly to perform such award-winning, traditional acts as "Slack Wire," "Diabolo," and "China Soul." In more recent years, the company has added such gravity-defying spectacles as "Mirage," "Mirage of Dragons," "Confuscise," "Pirates!," and "Sun Birds."
