As an incredible alternative to entertain your guests or clients, Spelbound, the UK's premier Acrobatic Gymnastic Squad will leave them completely entranced and more than a little impressed. These guys are phenomenal!
Recently seen performing at the Closing Ceremony of the 2012 London Olympics, Spelbound consists of 13 acrobatic gymnasts who are all former or current members of the Great Britain Acrobatic Gymnastics Team. Between them, they have won a vast amount of medals in their sport both at national and International level.
They were catapulted into the public awareness after their first appearance on top rated ITV show, Britain’s Got Talent in April 2010 and went on to feature prominently in the headlines about the show. They won the live TV final in front of a watching audience of 15 million – one of ITV’s biggest hits of 2010.
The group was formed in 2009 especially to enter Britain’s Got Talent and showcase their sport which was not generally known about. Acrobatics is the only form of gymnastics that is not currently an Olympic sport and most people view gymnastics as what they see on the Olympics. That is called artistic gymnastics and is completely different to what Spelbound do.
Their original goal was to raise the profile of acrobatics to a wider audience but they never thought they’d actually achieve what they did and go on to thrill a global TV audience and make themselves known across the World.
The group met whilst teammates at Spelthorne in Surrey but are now based at Heathrow Gymnastics Club which has the strongest artistic and acrobatic sections in the country.
The group is coached by Neil Griffiths who is also a Senior Coach with the Great Britain National Team and is Head of Acrobatics at Heathrow.
Spelbound has 13 people in it to reflect the 5 disciplines in acrobatics which are Women’s Pairs (2 girls), Men’s Pairs (2 boys), Mixed Pairs (boy and a girl), Women’s Groups (3 girls) and Men’s Groups (4 boys).
The troupe received many positive and favorable comments and reviews both during and after their Britain’s Got Talent experience. Most have picked up on the work ethic and driven professionalism instilled in the guys at an early age and an essential ingredient to succeed in such a demanding sport.
First & Foremost Entertainment Ltd are delighted to represent Spelbound by arrangement with Industry Music Group, and cannot recommend their unique talents and showmanship highly enough.
