From the street theatres of Dar-es-Salaam, Tanzania in Eastern part of Africa, a group of local boys trained endlessly to refine their art and became the African Acrobats!  The breathtaking, fast and astonishing show of African Acrobatics and Traditional Dance was part of Britain's got Talent in 2009 and Australia's Got Talent 2010 where they reached the semi finals.

The art of Acrobatics has become part of their lives and today they have performed more than 2000 shows in different continents in the last 15 years, bringing the spirit of their ancestors to life.

The African Acrobats performances have left a long lasting impression in the viewer’s minds for some days after the shows.

"We hired the African Acrobats for our summer festival Copmanthorpe Carnival in 2011 and the group performed on the Minster FM stage for crowds of thousands. The group were the highlight of the day and amongst the most energetic enthusiastic performers we have ever come across. The groups energy and acrobatic skills is second to none making them really popular with families of all ages and creating a real buzz on stage. We would love to work with the group again and highly recommend them as a very cost effective way of creating entertainment for any occasion"

"Each year, my university puts on an African-Caribbean inspired performance for over 700 guests. Although student-run, we are always keen to find an external group to bring 'sparkle' to our show. So we were delighted when Afrikan Acrobats said yes. Their YouTube clips looked promising and they definitely delivered. Both the guests and those taking part watched the performance in awe - a mixture of anticipation and excitement. You could feel everyone holding their breath with each stunt. Both routines were amazing and thrilling to watch! I would highly recommend them to anyone! I am sure they can cater to all types of events. I would love for them to come back again in the future."
