The Kenya Safari Acrobats offer a truly unique cultural experience. Hailing from the heart of Africa, this awe-inspiring and 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 audiences of all ages. Beyond Kenya, they have performed in Tanzania, The United States, Mexico, Canada and Japan. They have had the honor of performing at the White House, Disney, Six Flags, the Super Bowl and for MGM Entertainment, the Atlanta Hawks, the Chicago Bulls, the Los Angeles Lakers, the Miami Heat, the Orlando Magic and many other impressive clients.
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. Combining artistry with humor and playfulness, these gymnasts are a huge crowd pleaser. A unique and eye-popping blend of traditional arts and circus skills in classic African style, this show will leave your audience on their feet and filled with a wondrous sense of awe and amazement.
The performance was great. We had a sold-out/over-filled crowd (we seat 495 and had about 550 people shoe-horned into the auditorium.) The crowd was very enthusiastic and gave them a standing ovation. The company was very easy to work with and we had no problems.
Generally, they were the hit of the Festival. I'm always impressed when I hear adults say that they need to get over to the Children's Stage to see a particular act - the tent was jammed every time they performed.
The Kenya Safari Acrobats did a fantastic job! They did a great job with the kids at the outreach program, then the evening program was fantastic! The community and the campus personnel are still talking about the program. As far as ticket sales, we were close to selling out. I would highly recommend this group to anyone. They are easy to work with and do a great job keeping the audience entertained.
Loved 'em! Healthy crowd in the afternoon for the school show and a sellout for the evening show. They were very easy to work with too, which we always appreciate.
The Kenya Safari Acrobats performance was AMAZING! The cast was easy to work with, they were very friendly and outgoing! We had a great turn out for the event, we had over 500 people come to the show and say it was an amazing and breathtaking performance to see! I would absolutely recommend the Acrobats to others!
I have to say this has been the biggest event we have ever had and we are getting requests as to when they can come back! The students absolutely loved it and really enjoyed working with them. All of the staff at Student Life, said they were the nicest people we have worked with yet! Needless to say, the house was packed! 375 seats full! Again, thank you so much for all your assistance in this and we look forward to the return of the Kenyans!!!!
