By integrating acrobatics, music, dance, drama and martial arts with traditional programs, the troupe has become a distinct influential pioneer of the modern acrobatic art form. The troupe has also established the Beijing International Art School, a comprehensive art academy teaching acrobatics, dance, fine arts, film, performing arts and Chinese Kung fu while training performers from China, Russia, France, Spain, Korea, Vietnam and many other countries.
Their past notable performances have included the Olympic Games of Beijing of 2008 and the Kennedy Center's China Festival. The troupe has also won 32 gold medals in both local and international competitions throughout Europe, Asia and the United States, including the "Golden Clown Award" at the International Circus Festival of Monte Carlo - regarded as the highest honor of acrobats and circus in the world.
