Disclosure: We attended as media.
On Saturday, September 13th, my husband and I had tickets to see The National Acrobats of The People’s Republic of China at Segerstrom Center for the Arts in the beautiful Renée and Henry Segerstrom Concert Hall. We were really excited to go. The part when the men jumped through the hoops was impressive. It started off low and as it got higher and higher, it became more challenging. One of the performers made it at an incredible height! You can imagine how strong he has to be to be able to do it from a flat surface (there were no trampolines to jump off of).
