• Comment from the Team leader:
Have you heard of “Freestyle Basketball?”
Freestyle Basketball originates from the handling skills from street basketball, and attracts the audience by skillfully moving around the ball using their entire body.
We have gathered attention from the media in the past as “Basketball Dance”, but we perform in various stages and events so that we can reach out to the world and spread the appealing performance.

This performance video was made by student team members and former team members to celebrate the 10th anniversary of our performance team; SHAMGOD. Most team members started freestyle basketball after they have joined the team in their freshman year, but we as a team train newcomers into a proper performer.
