Harlem Globetrotters and Mark Ballas team up with Special Olympians
Rich Girl Host Joy Parris got to share a fun day with the Harlem GlobeTrotters at the Hollywood YMCA. Steppin out,” the Harlem Globetrotters and Mark Ballas from “Dancing with the Stars” team up to showcase basketball skills and teach the “Trotter Bounce” dance to 15 Special Olympic athletes. Ballas choreographed the new signature dance that is now a part of every Globetrotter game. Inspiring interaction from the masters will encourage the young athletes to join in the hoopla and show off their own awesome moves.
The event is part of the Globetrotters community outreach program that provides opportunities for players to connect with their fans prior to their “Fan’s Rule” World Tour premiere at Honda Center (2/15), STAPLES Center (2/16) and Citizen’s Business Bank Arena in Ontario (2/17).
