This is not a part of your APC registration.

"Saltoriya” is a new show comprising awe-inspiring internationally acclaimed performers, acrobats, daredevil stunts and comedy in an exhilarating, uplifting experience. The show combines feats of athleticism, comedy, original music and choreography to create an awe-inspiring production. It celebrates magnificent physical movements of world-class performers with universal and timeless appeal. Cirque-style productions bring amazing elements of the traditional circus to another level of excitement and aesthetics.

“Saltoriya” features a cast of incredibly talented American and European performers including acrobats, clowns, jugglers and dancers. The audience will see comedians, unicycle masters, an unsupported ladder balancing act, contortion-hand balancing, a hula-hoop act and a daring motorcycle globe act.
