The show was good. Musicians, dancers and singer were all very good. The venue however is terrible - a small hotel banquet room with terrible lighting and stage with low ceiling. Unless you’re in the first 3 rows, it is impossible to see dancers’ feet....More

This is one awesome show! Tour director recommended this show and it has been a highlight of our tour so far. These young people have so much talent and showmanship. Venue is small and very close.

What a great show! High energy and awesome talent. Thoroughly enjoyable. We came with a tour group and although the room was packed we all could see the stage.
