Acrobats in Kenya

Veronique Sprenger spent 10 weeks training with this troupe in a slum called Kangemi in Nairobi.

She’s doing a Masters in International Development Studies at the University of Amsterdam on these athletes.

Watch all the way through. It’s impressive what they’ve accomplished with very little equipment. Tumbling on hard wood floor, for example.

  1. Thank you so much for sharing my work! It is so important for people to know and see what incredible talent there is all around the world. I feel honored and I think it is very special to see how these acrobats, who live in the slums of Nairobi get this attention. Thank you!!
