After more than 17 years of apprenticeship under his dad and several years of world tour, Danny Chang was ready to step up as the President of the Golden Dragon Acrobats when Lien Chi Chang accepted the head coaching job at the National Taiwan College of Performing Arts. As a young entrepreneur, Danny showed tremendous passion toward the acrobatic arts. His first goal was to reorganize the company from a small group to a world-renowned production company. He chose the United States of America as his starting point. With Mr. Bill Fegan’s assistances, the Golden Dragon Acrobats debuted in 1985.
