Los Angeles' Herencia Flamenca has earned a reputation as one of the West Coast's leading flamenco ensembles, blending a respect for the roots of flamenco with innovative style. The company puts on a show with performers representing flamenco traditions from across Spain, including two very talented and very different dancers originally from Barcelona: company co-founder Yolanda Arroyo and veteran performer Dolores Gimenez, making her U.S. debut after decades of success as a dancer and choreographer in Spain. The company's other co-founder, guitarist Paco Arroyo, hails from Cordoba, while guitarist Vicente Gelo comes from Seville, and singer Sonia Berbel and guitarist Fernando Mejias were both born in Madrid. All these and more will unite for a show that embodies the soul of flamenco, both elegant and explosive. Learn More

I have seen Chinese acrobats before, and a lot of the routines from this show were about the same, and very traditional. They may not have been perfect in each performance, but I have to admit they were still pretty amazing. So, overall, it was an awesome show and I had a fun afternoon of entertainment. I definitely recommend it, especially to those who have never seen Chinese acrobats before!
One thing is to note is, Goldstar offered only balcony seats, and didn't let me pick the specific seats either. The ones we ended up getting were pretty far back, despite the show not even close to being sold out. Luckily we were able to move up many rows and had a great view of the stage in the end.
Glendale Arts & DowntownGlendale.com present the Peking Acrobats in a spectacular, awe-inspiring and astonishing evening that is sure to please audiences of all ages.
Everything in the historic Alex Theatre is up for grabs as these gifted tumblers, contortionists, jugglers, cyclists, and gymnasts tumble their way across the stage with impeccable timing and brilliant grace.
The Peking Acrobats are a perennial favorite. They’ve played to sold out crowds and are known worldwide for their extraordinary feats of balance, dexterity and precision, rooted in Chinese folk-art traditions and accompanied by a live Chinese orchestra. The Peking Acrobats pay homage to 2000 years of tradition and present a virtual kaleidoscope of entertainment and wonder.
