Libra

Our singers float in over the auditorium to stage level nestled in the sclaes of balance where a dance team on stage unify as masculinity and femininity. Overhead Justice with her scales of balance weighs the artistry of a six member male acrobatic ensemble challenging gravity on a high bar trapeze configuration that takes your breath away at ever death defying moment; - represented by PERISVONI - our Russian High Bar attraction.

Gemini

Our weird Galactic Twins ...Schizo and Freno, ... if you will!  Pairs of Fantasy twins, caught up in a dream and a nightmare. A wacky over sized alarmclock that comes to life! A trampoline based bed from which our babes (The Steinert's) escape our world re-known contemporary Juggler Victor Kee (hiding in a plexi glass ball next to their bed), to find refuge in an overhead coo-coo clock for a static trapeze comedy act suspended mid air high above their wildest dreams. Fantasy to satisfy the Gemini mindset.

Aquarius

Trendsetters in our Galactic Fantasy! Confident, secure in their beliefs and always where the action is!

When you have to ask "Who is that?  Wow!", rest assured you most likely just singled out the only Aquarian in the Group!  They will be seen, when they need to be seen ..., that annoyingly so being most of the time as they move and groove like the Wind in Aerius!

Taurus

Trendsetters in our Galactic Fantasy! Confident, secure in their beliefs and always where the action is!

When you have to ask "Who is that?  Wow!", rest assured you most likely just singled out the only Aquarian in the Group!  They will be seen, when they need to be seen ..., that annoyingly so being most of the time as they move and groove like the Wind in Aerius! Where the action is, the Aquarian wil be!

Capricorn

The most detrmined sign in our Zodiac. Competent, successful and on a constant mission to impress and they will succeed...regardless!  Call them a show-off, ill conceited but their charm is irresitable. The Billy goat seeking out the top of his or her mountain. The horny devil of "Terraminus" ... here to entertain you in Horns, Bowler Hat and yes ... a clickity-clack tap dance fantasy show-off for Virgo who could care less.

Virgo

Virgo, with two sides to her, coy and seductive. Literally so! The veil she uses as her disguise, fools none of us! A Veil Dance and a kickline with 32 sets of gorgeous legs... what more could a show want ... well hang on to your hat because  Virgo is about to show you! Their wild and seductive side, will shock you!

Cancer

After INTERMISSION Act 3 starts off with the Keeper of Time "TEMPUS" playing on top of the water tank, surrounded by laser beams ... quietly obeserving Cancer Fan Girls as the appear one by one from underneath bellowing parachutes painted like Cancer crustacean shells. The dance develops into a sensual protective classical fan dance with 32 female dancers, ...the protection of the Cancer inner vulnerability, ...so typical of the Sun Sign. A beautiful show stopper, ... ala "Swan Lake" style. Choreographer Mistinguett created a marvelous piece.

Scorpio

The sharp and crasp poisenous "Stinger", our Galactic Manipulator of Feelings, Spectacular Mood Swings that jump from irresistable, resentful to then suddenly being extremely remorseful, almost irredescent. Not to be trusted, ... yet very few of us can resist falling under their spell. After all, what is passion without conflict ... and then out of the blue comes our reward with the sweet taste of regret. They just can't help themselves ... can they now?

Pisces

Private, withdrawn and protective of their feelings in keeping with their  element of Water.

This beautiful Galactic Sun Sign entertain us with a spectacular underwater ballet in which they swirl turn and drift ...gorgeous but, for the mostly untouchable yet, the glass windows of the water tank offers a glimpse into their souls and their tranquil domain they secured in "Galaguarius"...their Water domain.

Aries

Poised on a disk carried on stage by 8 men at shoulder level, Aries explodes in a "Fiery Dance" reminiscent of "Volcana"! Behind her a torch bearing fire procession approaches, lead by a couple representing the Element of Fire, as they join her in a dance fueled by the "Aries Fire" from deep within the Aries soul. The Aries strength and determination to exercise dominance of power, overpowers the dance floor. THE FOOL is in awe of this display of power.

Sagitarius

The Centaur and his impeccable contol as to the refined artistry displayed by balancing his arrow on an often extremely volatile platform of support, driven and propelled in any direction at his or her whim. Always dead on target to great admiration of the onlooker. SAGITARIUS is our Acrobatic Adagio Act keeping us glued to our seats watching perfection at play. They become one with the task at hand, ...just like they do in Life.

Leo

Admired by all, when they keep their distance and refrain from their characteristic over powering bulldozer type personalities. Aries directs attention to all things emotional.  They display a hard outer appearance so easily compared to that of a "dominatrix";- wild, daring, blood hard and are passionate in their quest.  Yet, almost always hiding behind a mask,... for it serves as a  great way to hide that unacknowledged vulnerability which so often is their downfall when the restraints are abolished.

LEO "Cracks the Whip", ... and without fail we all pay attention .
