Garden City, NY Classics for Kids at Nassau Community College is proud to present Jabali African Acrobats on Sunday, March 9 at 1:30 and 3:30 p.m. in the College Center Building.

Jabali African Acrobats is an incredible Kenyan troupe that combines Chinese and African traditions of acrobatics in a fast-paced show that blends limbo, tumbling, jumping, dancing and amazing intricate balances. Performers bounce, bop and balance to a joyful Benga beat as they combine Chinese acrobatic feats with East African music tradition. Winners of many national acrobatic competitions in Kenya, Jabali has also performed at major arts festivals in the U.S., Canada, Europe and Japan. This breathtaking show is known as “Kenya's high energy super-circus.”

The performance of Jabali African Acrobats is sponsored by the NCC Cultural Program. Tickets cost $1.50 per person. Performances are held in the College Center Building on the NCC campus, which is accessible to the disabled. Since seating is limited, parents are urged to purchase tickets in advance.
