BreakSk8 – June 8 – June 30, 2012

BreakSk8

In 1964, Harold Schafer contracted with Al Sheehan of Minneapolis to create a show for his newly acquired amphitheater. Harold asked Al to identify variety acts to include in the show that the folks from North Dakota would not have to travel far from home to see. World-class variety acts right in our own backyard! Continuing with that tradition we are kicking off the 2012 season with a variety act that you won’t want to miss!

Breaksk8, a Hip Hop dance crew on roller skates from Kokomo, Indiana, has been featured on several TV shows including NBC’s “America’s Got Talent,” MTV’s “America’s Best Dance Crew,” and Disney’s hit show “Shake it Up.” Since the group formed in 2001, Breaksk8 has amazed audiences around the globe with their unique style of entertainment on wheels.
