Basketball Acrobats the Chicago Boys - Sept 23 - 8pm - Bresnan Arena

On Friday, September 23, 2016, the Chicago Boyz Acrobatic Team will perform at Minnesota State Mankato in Bresnan Arena at 8 p.m. 

As seen on NBC’s hit reality TV show “America’s Got Talent,” the Chicago Boyz Acrobatic Team is a professional gymnastics troupe consisting of talented young men and boys from the Chicagoland area.

Their performance includes amazing acrobatic stunts and tricks inside twirling jump ropes, catapulting off mini trampolines and thundering tumbling routines with impeccable timing.  

Founded in 1999 by professional gymnast Tim Shaw, these young inner city youth are taught discipline, respect, hard work, integrity and teamwork. Members must maintain a “C” average in school, and are not allowed to drop out of school, associate with gangs, drugs, alcohol or tobacco. Through Tim’s positive impact, many kids have not only become professional polished gymnasts, but turned their lives around in the process.
