High-flying kids from a Fresh Meadows gym performed at a half time performance for the Harlem Globetrotters on Saturday.


The gymnasts from My Gym in Queens led led a half-time show at the Barclays Center, where audience members were dazzled with aerial stunts and feats in the style of a basketball performance. The children, between the ages of 4 and 11, met the Globetrotters and got the autographs of their favorite athletes.

In front of 15,000 audience members, the 15 kids performed routines that they had practiced for months, according to Meredith Coleman, the director of the gym.

“We thought they were going to be really nervous but they went out there like they did this for a living,” Coleman said.

The performance marks the end of a busy year for the gym kids. My Gym was featured in a Sesame Street episode about diversity in September.

The team is being invited back to the center for a performance in March during a college basketball game.
