By 2/19/2024 11:46:00 AM

360 ALLSTARS, a showcase of world record-holding athletes and artists, has returned to the New Victory Theater, offering families a visual experience of freestyle basketball, BMX biking, breakdancing, acrobatics, and more from February 17 through March 3.

Note: I received media tickets to the show for review purposes. Views expressed are always 100% my own.

Produced by Onyx Productions in Australia, 360 ALLSTARS is celebrating its 10th anniversary at the New Victory Theater with performances featuring a fusion of street-inspired stunts and a pulse-pumping live soundtrack.

This 10th-anniversary production is part of an 18-month world tour featuring a diverse cast hailing from Australia, Japan, Indonesia, Netherlands, and the United States.

Overall here are three features families will enjoy

Highlights of Various Sports Skills

While the whole show is an amazing fusions of skills including BMX Flatlanding, Breakdancing, Freestyle Basketballing, Circus and more, there are moments when each is in it's own spotlight.

Such a great way to expose children to being creatively active. Also shows them a way to see how simple sports like bike riding, hula hooping and dancing can be expanded and even connected to other activities.

Audience Interaction

While a lot of shows have a form of audience interaction, asking them to clap, sing along, etc, 360 ALLSTARS takes it up a level. The audience is included in singalongs, dance alongs and more.

It really makes for a full engaging LIVE experience. Even the parents had moments that focused on them, which was refreshing fun for a "children's" performance.

Free Lobby Tie-in Kid Activities

The show on stage is just one part of the visitor experience! For 45 minutes before and 20 minutes after every show, the lobby of New Victory features free do-together activities in which families can try new performance skills or explore the show’s themes.

BEFORE the 360 ALLSTARS performance, kids (and their families) enjoyed themed activities including hula hoops, mini basketball and mini hip-hop dance lessons.

At each area there was a teaching artist or New Victory staff members to guide the children through each activity before the show.

AFTER the 360 ALLSTARS performance, kids (and their families) once again headed into the lobby to meet the 360 ALLSTARS crew, ask questions and get a photo.

It was such a fun activity that after the performance, I also had to get a photo with the crew.
