The history of acrobatics in China can be traced back to Neolithic times. It is believed that acrobatics grew out of the labor and self-defense skills that the people practiced and demonstrated during their leisure time. By 300 BC, such skills as walking on 3-meter high stilts and juggling 7 daggers at a time had been developed in China. As the world economy developed, acrobatics was also developed into a kind of performance art. Acrobatics became known worldwide through performances presented along the Silk Road.
The 2017 program will organize students to watch the acrobatics show.
