{ Chicago Boyz: Acrobatic Team }


The Chicago Boyz Acrobatic Team is a professional gymnastics troupe consisting of talented young men and boys from the Chicagoland area.

Their performance includes amazing acrobatic stunts and tricks inside twirling jump ropes, catapulting off mini trampolines and thundering tumbling routines with impeccable timing.

Founded in 1999 by professional gymnast Tim Shaw, these young inner city youth are taught discipline, respect, hard work, integrity and teamwork. Members must maintain a “C” average in school, are not allowed to drop out of school, associate with gangs, drugs, alcohol or tobacco. Through Tim’s positive impact, many kids have not only become professional polished gymnasts, but turned their lives around in the process.

"They are definitely one of the best halftime acts that I bring in each year and probably the best in the NBA."

"I was invited to see these amazing men perform at my local college. At first I was skeptical that I would enjoy such an act, but it blew my mind! The way the crowd would go wild and the fun and joy on the boys faces was just amazing. The tricks done and the energy in the room sent me home on a high. After seeing them on America’s Got Talent, I was already a fan but now, I’ve become a supporter and I tell everyone I know about them. They are a must see! If you want high energy and amazing fun, this is the best thing to see. So family friendly and even fun for a date night event."
