This week, we talk about:

Harlem Triksterz Basketball Comedy Stunt Show April 6
This talented group of athletes, led by Kevin “Showboat” Jackson, performs skillful trick shots and routines. A comedian and DJ bring the funny jokes and energetic music. The show also includes positive messages about achieving your goals.
The Harlem Triksterz promise to put on a great show that is fun for the whole family.
Silent Disco for Teens April 12
Bring your friends and dance your heart out to three different channels of music. The gym in the North Albany YMCA will be transformed into your silent disco nightclub for the evening. We’ll have light refreshments, too.
The silent disco is sponsored by APL and the Capital District YMCA North Albany Branch.
