Zuzu Acrobats flying in the North East State on February 15 | Culture & Leisure

BLOUNTVILLE — Prepare to be amazed by the high-energy acrobatic moves of the Zuzu Acrobats as they return to Northeast State Community College for two free performances on Tuesday, February 15.

Sponsored by the Northeast State International Education Program, Zuzu Acrobats elevate acrobatic dance to a performance art. The band from Mombassa, Kenya first performed on campus in February 2020.

Zuzu’s acrobats offer rapid pyramid building, contortions, somersaults and limbo, as well as an educational lecture. Who knows, maybe you will be invited on stage to take part in this exciting show.

The troupe mixes “circus” acrobatics and popular dance steps to African music. The Zuzu Acrobats have performed in over 25 countries including Australia, China, Korea, Germany, France, Italy and Spain. The group made their first appearance in America in 1999.

Free performances begin at noon and 7 p.m. at the Wellmont Regional Center for the Performing Arts on the Blountville campus, 2425 Highway 75, adjacent to the Tri-Cities Airport.

The production is part of Northeast State’s commemoration of Black History Month throughout February. For more information, contact (423) 279-7669 or
