LEAF Schools & Streets present Jabali Acrobats, Oct. 20

LEAF Schools & Streets brings Jabali Acrobats to The Orange Peel. On Monday, October 20, 2014 the Jabali Acrobats will perform at 11 a.m. at the Orange Peel for families and school field trips. Direct from Mombasa, Kenya these phenomenal acrobats combine the artistry of fast paced movement, music, dance and incredible acrobatic elegance to perform a full stage theatrical extravaganza.  Jabali Acrobats will be gracing the LEAF Festival stage during the October LEAF Festival, but folks who cannot make it to LEAF, can still attend this interactive performance at the Orange Peel.  The audience will get fully involved, and Jabali will also share about their culture and history.

This LEAF Schools & Streets outreach show is low cost to allow all families and school programs the opportunity to attend.  Tickets are only $3 per youth and $5 per adult. Interested teachers and parents should contact intern@theLEAF.org to make reservations, or call the LEAF office at (828) 68-MUSIC or (828) 686-8742.

This thrilling performance exemplifies the link between athletics and the arts.  Incredible skills of acrobatics, contortions, tumbling, human pyramids, and chair balancing turns to dance, with the Congo Snake Dance, the Flaming Limbo Bar Dance, Skip Rope Footwork techniques and set to electrifying music.
