The evening will feature performances from an all-Winnipeg cast:
Samantha Halas - Handbalancing and Contortion
After training in China and San Francisco with some of the worlds best contortion instructors, Sam calls Winnipeg home and is Winnipeg's only professional contortionist!
Virginia Draghi Ranson - Pole
Born in Italy and trained by some of the best pole instructors in the world, Virginia is now a certified Vertical Dance (IPDRA) instructor with distinction, and she is now looking forward to teach and share with everyone, her love of pole dancing, with her strong-sexy style and of course a rock'n'roll soundtrack!
Carla Church and Meghann Klowak - Duo Cerceaux
Strength, power and grace- Carla and Meghann's duo cerceaux work is the result of countless hours of practice and even more time spent conditioning.
Michael Arinze - Aerial Straps
Michael combines raw strength with unflinching control whilst performing one of the most difficult and strenous circus disciplines in the aerial straps.
Anastasiya Yevsigneeva - Contortion
From Russia and currently a student at The School of Contemporary Dance here in Winnipeg, Anastasiya's incredible bending body will also bend your mind as you ask yourself- "How is that possible?" and- "Thank goodness she does this so I don't have to!"
Daniel and Kimberly Craig - Hand to Hand Acrobatics
Daniel and Kim are "The Street Circus"- one of Winnipeg's most well known circus exports. Come for the fun music, stay for the bulging neck muscles!
Patrick Gregoire - Prestidigitation and Magic
The "Great Gregoire" has transformed from one of Winnipeg's best young magicians to a Canada-renowned talent in his own right. Patrick's skill is seriously next level- you might even start to believe in magic!
… and many more!
