Acrobats of China featuring the New Shanghai Circus
I didn't know that the human body could bend in that many places at the same time. Granted, those kids are at the flexible age but i don't remember ever being able to do that with my body. They seemed to float above the floor unaffected by gravity and their performance was olympic quality gymnastics. Everyone should take this show in.

Dolly Parton's Dixie Stampede Dinner & Show - Branson, MO
This was by far the best activity we did as a family on our vacation to branson. Our boys, 3yrs and 6yrs, loved every minute of it. I was very surprised that it held our 3yr old's attention as well as it did, he was mesmerized. We almost skipped the pre-show but were so glad that we didn't because it was great! The food was good and the animals beautiful. The riders were skilled and great at what they do. I would highly recommend it to anyone!

Acrobats of China featuring the New Shanghai Circus
This is by far the best show in branson, bar none! It is entertainment from the beginning to the end. The performers are fantastic and almost unbelievable in their talents and strengths. The costumes are awesome. We are bring in our 3 sons and wives back in a couple of weeks to see them...And we'll enjoy them the second time.
