We enjoyed ourselves. I took my teens 13 & 15 and they enjoyed the energy, my 13 yr old said it was "tight" & my 15 yr old said it was very entertaining. I don't believe they should have called it 'dance' tho as it was more about tumbling and acrobatics which was great, but I did expect to see dancing as the name of the show stated. The costumes were only okay, only the lady with the Mohawk had an interesting costume, the rest just looked like practice clothes, so a suggestion there would be to have costumes like the advertisement above. Also, would have like the commentary to be a bit louder so I didn't have to guess what was being said and laugh "late."
Overall, we enjoyed the show, even the end bit where Ms. Streb comes out and gets the audience moving........maybe do that just after intermission.

Very different - great combination of athletics and clever sets
Some good humor and dramatic visuals
I would recomend they also add lights and or dayglow to some of the activities and perform in the dark - would have been very dramatic!
Thrill to the impact of extreme sports combined with the poetry and split-second timing of dance. Exploding with the suspense and energy of near-misses and imminent crashes, action-architect Elizabeth Streb’s daring performers explore the boundaries of force, gravity, action and reaction. Whether flying, falling, or seemingly suspended in mid-air, Streb brings the audience ringside for a match-up of human pitted against the phenomenal forces of everyday physical action—creating a new aesthetic of grace and danger.
