PULLMAN, Wash. — A 28-member Chinese dance troupe that demonstrates a 2,000-year-old tradition of clowning and grace will perform the Washington State University campus Thursday.

The Peking Acrobats will combine the flexibility and strength of gymnasts, the grace of dancers and the showmanship of circus performers in one colorful performance. The group will appear at 7:30 p.m. Thursday in Beasley Coliseum.

Tickets can be purchased at all TicketsWest outlets, by phone at (800) 325-SEAT or online at www.beasley.wsu.edu. Ticket prices range from $8 to $28, depending on age and seating.
