The acrobats take the stage at 6 p.m. Monday, April 7, in Havens Auditorium, for a free performance.

The multicultural show includes contortions, foot juggling, plate spinning, Chinese yo-yo, and group acrobatics, along with a lesson about Chinese culture and customs.

"When you watch something like this on television, you don't get to ask questions," said Maria Ahmad, coordinator of student life and campus diversity. "This is a really fun performance, not just to see the acrobats, but to listen to them talk about their culture. You can ask questions about how they became acrobats, and learn about their training. It's entertaining, and educational at the same time."

The show, sponsored by Cougar Advocates for Diversity and the Office of Diversity, is open to the public. Doors open at 5:30 p.m.

Indiana University Kokomo serves north central Indiana.
