Before the Blues battle it out against St Kilda on Sunday at the MCG, footy fans attending the game will be treated to a special performance by the ‘Carlton Cadets Acrobatics Team’. 

Coming off the interchange for the Blue Crew, the dancers are from Dream Entertainment Studios, which is owned by Dennis Armfield’s fiancée, Abby. 

After sitting in the stands for many years watching Captain Carlton perform his impressive acrobatic tricks, Abby and her head acrobatics coach Shelagh, had a vision of their young acrobats showing off their skills too – as mini Captain Carltons and Navy Ninas. 

That vision has now become a reality, as 10 young acrobats aged between five and 15 make the MCG their stage this weekend. 

Carlton fans will witness amazing flipping skills and airborne tricks, so make sure you keep a look out as they’re aiming to impress!

The Carlton Cadets are mini super heroes working their way up the ranks to be just like their idols Captain Carlton and Navy Nina.
