The Kenya Safari Acrobats will perform Thursday at West Virginia University at Parkersburg.
According to a news release, hailing from the heart of Africa, the Kenya Safari Acrobats offers a unique cultural experience. This dynamic dance troupe takes acrobatics to exhilarating extremes. The group members learned acrobatics as children on the beaches of Kenya as a means to break free from an impoverished country. Now they serve as artistic ambassadors for Kenya as they travel the globe, entertaining and inspiring audience of all ages.
The Kenya Safari Acrobats perform a non-stop ride of gravity-defying human pyramids, balancing, tumbling, limbo dancing, hurling through hoops and breathtaking contortions, all while clapping to a joyful Benga Beat. A unique and eye-popping blend of traditional arts and circus skills in classic African style, these performers combine artistry with humor and playfulness.
