    This unique show is truly a must see! A dazzling & energetic performance, I literally feasted my eyes for an hour on gorgeous spinning, dancing, movement, & lights….a breathtaking experience. Amazing!

    OMG, they only have two more shows left! If this talented team from Denver could be in town until the end of fest on the 30th, for sure they’d be sold out, and they might have won Best of Fest.

    I’ve seen MANY aerialists since I caught the Fringe bug 19 years ago. This one is tied for first place (along w Quixotic). If they’re not charging $55-125 a ticket when they get back to Denver, they soon will, like Quixotic once had $10 tickets at Fringe a couple decades ago (Fringe is possibly THE most affordable and most varied arts fest in the world).

    This show has stylish everything (costumes, sparkles in their hair styles, serious athleticism, ballerinas from tip toes to spinning sculptures, dancing in heels, waves of colors with flashlights in the dark).

    The soundtrack blends classical and modern seamlessly (like blending two versions of several songs, including Moonlight Sonata and Prelude in G; international flavors from Spain and Celtic music; sounds from the most popular nightclubs). You’ll wish the soundtrack was for sale after the show.

    Surprise your sweetie and tell ‘em you got something special planned. Before or after, come to Union Station for the two weeks only Fringe Visual Arts Gallery. It’ll be one of your most memorable dates. A Fringe Volunteer that just saw it is bringing his date to this on Sunday.

    Bring the kids! Before or after, Union Station has Barbie displays that people are lining up to take pics.

    If your neighbors say no or make excuses, bonk ‘em on the head, put them in your car, and give them smelling salts when you arrive. Don’t worry. They will soon thank you. This is the sort of show that will make you a fan of Fringe for the rest of your life.

    Incredible! Loved it

  7. Laurel on July 22, 2023 at 11:26 pm

    Absolutely mesmerizing.

    • Stephanie on July 23, 2023 at 1:20 pm

      This show is amazing! They’re all so talented. It’s impressive how they just keep going without an impact on their performance. A must see before they leave.

    I really enjoyed this performance. It wasn’t exactly what I expected. It was described as being inspired by classical music, it starts with Ave Maria, there are traditional ballet moves, and the audience I was with were quietly enjoying the show. Later the tone shifts and there are some really fun moments that remind me of the Blue Man Group with what is done with light and sound, but the respectfully quite crowd remained respectfully quiet and waited for permission to clap and cheer along. If you see the show, expect more than just classical music, and feel free to cheer during the performances. There can also be a lot happening at once with 6-8 performers performing at the same time, so you may need to see it more than once to take it all in.

    Incredibly talented troop with innovations and endurance that must be seen! Catch their last show tonight!

  10. Randy on July 23, 2023 at 8:22 pm

    Awesome production! So graceful in every way, whether in the air or on the ground! The mix of ballet dance and other types along with the Aerials was amazing! The production was high energy and fast moving. The action never stopped from beginning to end. Thank you for coming to Kansas City to share your program.

  11. Kelsey on July 23, 2023 at 11:08 pm

    Stunning! I didn’t want it to end!

  12. Mary Barrett on July 24, 2023 at 4:50 pm

    So glad I made it to their final performance Sunday night. These young women are spot on professional, talented, creative with great energy and kindness. Their aerial skills are as good as their dance skills on pointe! Such Grace as you’d expect from ballet trained dancers. I’ll look forward to seeing them in Denver.
