Harlem Wizards bring talents to Manchester University

Harlem WizardsThe community is invited for the free game that will be full of oohs, ahs and hilarious humor, as the Harlem Wizards take the court at the Physical Education and Recreation Center (PERC) on the North Manchester campus at 7 p.m.

Basketball fanatics and even non-hoop lovers of all ages will enjoy this family-friendly theatrical game that brings over-the-top talent coupled with dynamic energy for a unique basketball experience. 

Started in 1962, sports promoter Howie Davis envisioned a show and organization that would bring a Broadway twist to the competitive sport of basketball. Fifty-three years later, that vision continues to grow as the Harlem Wizards bring fan participation, world-class tricks and sky-high slams to communities across the United States.

The game is a gift to the community, part of Homecoming and Family Weekend 2015 at Manchester. Those who come to the game are welcome to stay for the Dance across the Ages, hosted by the school’s Ballroom and Latin Dance Club. It is free in the auxiliary gym at the PERC. Lessons begin at 8 p.m., followed by the dance at 8:30 p.m.
