Voted the #1 halftime show in the NBA, the F-M Acro Team has been bringing crowds to their feet since 1969 with their high flying acrobatic show. The performance includes power tumbling, synchronized mini tramping and hand balancing.

The 41 year tradition has a highlight list that basketball enthusiasts can only dream of: photo shoots with Charles Barkley, Lynn Swan, Larry Bird, Kevin McHale, Isaiah Thomas, Karl Malone, Kevin Garnett, Dikembi Motumbo, Joe Dumars, John Stockton, Doc Rivers, Dominique Wilkins, Phil Jackson, and Michael Jordan; a specially requested performance at Dr. Julius Erving’s last game in Philadelphia, and 9 NBA All-Star appearances as the featured half-time.

What is the mystique about this small group of dedicated young athletes who sprint down carpeted runways of “spring floor” to either tumble through the air in a series of back handsprings and somersaults or launch their graceful bodies high into the air with the assistance of a “mini-tramp”? Are they really as delighted to perform these “risky” stunts as they seem? Can any group of kids be as wholesome and fresh as these youngsters appear?

In all cases, the answer is a resounding YES! When their talent and enthusiasm come together in front of an appreciative crowd, something magic happens. The mystique is best explained by the group’s impact on people of all ages. The first reaction is disbelief, because there is so much happening at once; then comes the recognition of their wonderful athleticism, followed by sheer joy at watching their exuberance and their obvious enjoyment. These young people have a lot of fun doing what they do, and that is infectious as well as very entertaining.

The F-M Acro Team has been the featured halftime entertainment at countless high school, college, university, and NBA basketball games over the past two decades. They have also performed at many benefits, corporate gatherings, and other special events.

In 1981 The F-M Acro Team was designated North Dakota’s Official Goodwill Ambassadors.

NBA Highlights include 1 playoff game, 9 All-Star games and a special request by Dr. Julius Irving for his final regular season game at the Spectrum in Philadelphia. NCAA highlights include 30+ consecutive years performing at the University of Minnesota and 2 Division II National Championships. High school halftimes include hundreds of performances at games between spirited rivals and in most years the North Dakota State Basketball Tournaments.
