The Art of Movement: Freerunner Levi Meeuwenberg & Co-Founders of the UM Parkour Club Present Parkour & Freerunning
This event was held on September 26, 2008 at Downtown Library: Multi-Purpose Room
Levi Meeuwenberg, a competitor on G4's "American Ninja Challenge" and "Ninja Warrior," returns to AADL, this time joined by Travis Graves and Mike Friedman, co-founders of the UM Parkour Club. Come learn more about parkour and freerunning, the exciting new disciplines that turn everyday objects in the city, into an obstacle course. Parkour is the art of moving through your environment using only your body and the surroundings to propel yourself. It can include running, jumping, climbing, even crawling, if that is the most suitable movement for the situation.
Ann Arbor resident and Traverse City native Levi Meeuwenberg has been a stunt double in KSwiss and Mountain Dew commercials. He has also appeared in the pilot episode of the TV show "Chuck" and performed freerunning in Madonna's 2006 "Confessions World Tour" and her "Jump" music video.
