Sasha Harrington

Sasha Harrington began on her acrobatic path as soon as she could walk, dedicating over a decade of her life to high-level gymnastics, competing in the national rankings. She broke from the rigid regimen of the sport for the circus world and and has since formally and extensively trained with such companies as Pendulum Dance in Portland, Hollywood Aerial Arts, AcroSports and the San Francisco Circus Center. She has most recently worked with City Circus, Velocity Circus, the Edwardian Ball, Disneyland, and others, and now continues to explore the avenues of circus worldwide, performing as an aerial acrobat with a bold and dynamic style of her own.

Sasha’s aerial specialties include tissue and hoop – solo, doubles, or synchronized group acts with a focus on acrobatic drops, character work, and advanced technique integrated into a strongly dynamic and fluid style. She also has extensive experiences performing tumbling, dance, and partner/group acrobatics.

Niels Duinker

Niels Duinker is one of the hottest new professional jugglers today. His show is a combination of top notch juggling, performance, and youthful enthusiasm.
The two biggest newspapers in his country called him “hilarious” (Algemeen Dagblad) and a “juggling wonder” (de Telegraaf).

Juggling has taken him from Europe to Asia; from
Amsterdam to Las Vegas.
He mixes Russian-style juggling technique and
perfection, American energy and presentation, added
together with a European twist. He has won three gold
medals at the Dutch Juggling Championships and two gold
medals at major juggling competitions in the United States.
His show includes world class juggling, audience participation, crazy
stunts and clean comedy. Niels belongs to the new generation of
performers—funny, technically amazing, and always pushing the
envelope of entertainment. Again, his shows are clean and family friendly.
Audience members of all ages will enjoy Niels’ juggling prowess and comedic style.

In this show you see Niels blindly kick a club over his head, as well as juggle 5 clubs behind his back. Although he is not a magician, you will marvel at how he squeezes himself through a tennis racket and somehow manages to eat an apple at the same time. He will juggle more objects than you can count–since 2003 Niels is the only performer from his country to perform 7 clubs onstage.

Niels performs on cruise ships, in casinos, at theme parks, and for dinner shows and corporate events. You name it. He can do it. Niels can perform a 45-minute comedy show, or a silent 9-minute variety act. He can adjust the length of his show to the duration that fits your programme best so that you get the most out of his appearance.

Biography
Niels Duinker started performing in 1998 at the age of 13. Not long after his first show he joined the youth circus in Rotterdam to improve his skills. During that period he performed a duo show, called “Big Troubles”. In 2003 for his 18th birthday he performed his solo act at the European Juggling Convention in Denmark. To celebrate his birthday, he became the first juggler from the Netherlands to juggle 7 clubs onstage. In 2004 Niels was invited by the World Juggling Federation to come over to Las Vegas and compete in the Sport Juggling World Championships. These competitions were aired by ESPN, and Niels earned second place in the Intermediate Ball Competition. In 2005 Niels won two gold medals at the Dutch Juggling Championships and in 2006 he won a gold medal in the Extreme Juggling Championships held that year at the International Jugglers’ Association Festival in Portland, Oregon. During the spring of 2006 Niels performed in a show created by famous Dutch theater producer and performer Freek de Jonge. Recently, Niels produced his first DVD with show footage and an instructional section for beginning jugglers as well. During the fall of 2007 Niels performed his solo show for 3 months at “Huis Ten Bosch” the largest theme park in Japan. In 2008 Niels will be teaching juggling at the government circus school in Rotterdam.

Jenevieve the Serpentins Sorceress

From the enchanted otherworld where sorceress fairies fly by the dark side of the moonlight. Dark ritual tribal fusion belly/snake dance dedicated to the goddess.  Jenevieve has been dancing and training  for over 15 years with world renowned teachers and holds an AA from the American academy of dramatic arts.

Instructor, director, performer, spellbinding wild woman and  dedicated artist ,Jenevieve has trained and performed in jazz, ballet ,gymnastics, hip hop,bellydance, acting modeling, ritual goddess worship dance and is soon to be a certified yoga instructor. The serpentine sorceress has performed in Lebanon for  cabaret theatre and her other credits include Spike TV, cal 9.Channel 13 Fox,WB channel 5,BET ,MTV, Reebok ,Self Magazine, Kudos and Red Rock news(Sedona AZ),Steel panther, Snoop dog, Master P, Matchbox 20 and Cirque Du’Soliel.

Jenevieve is also a third generation trained tarot reader…for more info go to odiyyamagicka.com. Her magickal creativity and mystical intention is evident in her Avant garde bewitching performance artistry.
As a dedicated yogini, all movement is a sacred energy flow supported by the magic of breath and movement united. I don’t believe such a union stops when I leave the yoga studio or when I am doing tarot readings for my clients….all is ritual,all is enchanted and animated. My devotion to the goddess Kali has been an immense inspiration to me as well as my other spirit guides(Rayven is my most talkative) and my close connection to the fairy realm.
All these beings as well as ascended masters,angels and fixed stars, guide me in manifesting abstract truths of this life,the afterlife and nature,beyond the common site of the human veil. Besides training my physical body with much discipline, I train my second site,my etheric cord to spirit and my astral self to open dimensions to lost information of ancient beings who still speak to those who listen. The Akashic charts hold all things ever known and unknown and the goddess has told me it is time to bring back the old ways and bring this planet back to harmony peace and a balance of natural and supernatural forces.
Dance is an amazing conduit to create a vortex of power and energy for the creation of these truths and the voice of those unseen who wish to assist us with their natural magick. I am grateful to be a channel for such a divine purpose and be a medium for the goddess through dance. Serpent energy also holds much power in the flow of kundalini energy and my snake is  my familiar here to lift the veil with her wisdom and depth of psychic sense.I hope you are interested in exploring more of this ritual dance journey with me. Please join my mailing list for workshops and events related to tribal fusion bellydance as well as many mystical topics related to the sacred art of dance.I am available for events, teaching, and workshops so feel free to contact me.

Bizzaro

In a world full of reality TV and lackluster entertainment, Bizzaro. The Optical Illusionist strives to open people’s eyes and prove that Different isn’t Bad.
Bizzaro has performed from coast to coast and appeared on FOX, NBC, America’s got Talent, and the Travel Channel’s Extreme Conventions. He has even been seen at the famed Magic Castle in Hollywood, CA.
From lighting himself on fire to getting attacked by snack chips, a Bizzaro show is unlike anything else in the world. Using various types of music as his frame, he creates a unique picture with visual comedy and off the wall illusions that combine vaudeville and silent movie antics.
He has also created much of his own magic that is sold across the world to performers of varying types. The products range from DVDs to one of a kind props. He specializes in fabricating magic for other entertainers and is a creative director and lecturer.

To Bizzaro, “normal” is just a setting on the dryer.
