Velvet fuses together music, dance, circus, burlesque and disco inferno, resulting in an insatiably flawless and glamourous show that you simply have to see. Although the show was off to a late start, this is quickly forgotten as the beats and bright lights kick off, an expertly executed hand balancing act heats things up and successfully gets the night started.
Live singers bring alive forgotten hits which the crowd can’t help but sing along to in between the incredibly alluring circus acts. Things get a little more risqué as burlesque takes over, keeping the audience on the edge of their seats. Every act is honed to perfection, creating a breath taking show which you just don’t want to end.
The infectious atmosphere of excitement on stage doesn’t fail to capture you. No matter how bad your day has been, you’ll leave in the mood to dance.
