The acrobats performed Rhythm Ball Catching, Precision Rope Skipping, Dexterity Umbrella Juggling, Little Gorgeous Girl’s Diabolos and flourishing magic.
China’s Ambassador to Lesotho Hu Dingxian said the year of the Dragon symbolised power and prosperity.
Dingxian said the China National Acrobatic Troupe was founded in 1950 by the Chinese government and became the first troupe to perform abroad.

It has since performed in more than 120 countries gaining international acclaim.
Tourism Minister ‘Mannete Ramaili said cooperation between Lesotho and China would boost development in both countries.

“The China National Acrobatic Troupe’s performance makes great contributions to the development of acrobatics and strengthens the friendship between China and other countries, especially Lesotho.”
