BMX-Driven ALL WHEEL SPORTS to Play Eccles Center, 12/7
Extreme and action-packed, All Wheel Sports adds a dazzling dose of adrenaline to The Eccles Center season on Saturday, December 7. Professional athletes - extreme skaters, skateboarders, and BMX bicycle performers - trick out at center stage with the help of ramps, pumping music and flashing lights. Dancers, trampoline artists, aerialists, pro scooters and spirited cheer stunts round out the high-octane performance. Show starts at 7:30 p.m.
Founded in 1995 by professional ice skater and former Team Rollerblade member Jill Schulz and her competitive freestyle skier and mountain bike racer husband Aaron Transki, All Wheel Sports has made its mark at theme parks (Universal, Knott's Berry Farm and more) as well as the semi-finals of 2012 "America's Got Talent."
The show's Park City appearance features BMX riders, in-line skaters, dancers, cheer stunts, pro scooters an aerial rope act, trampoline tricks and free running stunts. The cast of talented athlete-performers includes: Jeremy VanSchoonhoven (BMX trials rider); Provo-born Jaren "The Monster" Grob (known for in-line stunts that garnished gold medals at the X Games); Mike Castillo (BMX rider who has appeared in commercials as well as primetime shows such as Glee and CSI); in-line skater Coco Sanchez (also a consistent X Games medalist); artist-musician-BMX rider Scott Twiford; and in-line stunt skater and X Games medalist Fallon Heffernan.
Adding dance, gymnastics, trampoline tricks and aerialist performance to the All Wheel Sports show are: gymnasts/trampolinists Kevin Desrosiers and Drew Fourage (both of whom performed in the All Wheel Sports "America's Got Talent" competition) and dancer-tumbler-aerialist Lisa Kapchinske (formerly a member of the L.A. Clippers Fast Break Crew) as well as the show's Cheer Stunt Team.
"This show is the perfect combination of sports and cirque," says PCI executive director Teri Orr. "It's high-energy, highly entertaining and delivers just about enough adrenaline for our extreme town."
