The first group of national performers to be established by the People's Republic of China in 1950, the National Acrobats have toured more than 40 countries around the world, but 2011 is the first year they've visited the good old U.S.A. Watch them contort, bounce, and sail across the stage and defy death, and simultaneously feel your heart stop and start.
