It’s simple - make people happy. The easiest way to do that is to provide the best entertainment possible for presenters. Throughout our careers, we have performed around the globe creating award-winning shows and routines for audiences of all ages and nationalities. We have combined our love of circus arts and theatre into performances that will keep everyone in the audience engaged and delighted. Our goal is to have the audience walk away feeling satisfied that they have seen a show full of skill, comedy and yes, even a message.

Vitaly Beckman

When we were children the world is full of wonder and everything seemed to be magical. But as we grow older, we start to take things for granted and life becomes almost like a routine. Magic brings us back that feeling of being a child again. It reminds us of how it is to be in the present, how it is to be alive.

My goal is to inspire people to notice wonder and beauty in daily life. To have the capacity to be awed by the simple and ordinary is especially important in today’s tech-savvy society. My work is also symbolic and represents my belief that with enough effort and imagination, our dreams can come true.
