Up in the air on Friday night plans? How about an acrobat show?

Peking Acrobats, a group of gymnasts, jugglers, cyclists and tumblers from China,  will perform March 24.

Peking Acrobats, a group of gymnasts, jugglers, cyclists and tumblers from China, have also performed at the Kravis Center.

The Peking Acrobats deliver more than just a spectacular gymnastics show.

They’re often accompanied by high-tech special effects and live musicians playing traditional Chinese instruments, and they’re coming to the Eissey Campus Theatre of Palm Beach State College in Palm Beach Gardens this weekend. The acrobats perform their maneuvers atop a pagoda of chairs and are experts at trick cycling, precision tumbling, somersaulting and gymnastics, according to their management company.
