It was Friday night, and what a great evening it was at The Empire Room! The ELYSIUM CABARET arrived on the scene to share their incredibly creative visions with the world, the crowd was excited and ready to party and they were not disappointed! DJ Gunner warmed everyone up with fabulous tunes, Babypea sat, coffee in hand ,organizing the symphony ahead by making sure the caching was done and the mood was top notch! Wiz was smiling at the fantastic dance order he had brought into life while Paul and I greeted and called out to people, and then Paul was off and running, handing out that free top shelf champagne and the party moved into full swing!! Also extra extra! BIG news!! A very, very Happy 10th Anniversary to Kyser and Taema!!! One decade down; forever to go, we wish you all the Happiness and Love in the world!

Ariel – ‘ The Circle ‘ by Blackmore’s Night – With Sagia, Morganna, Koyia, Alexis
It is anyone’s guess what Ariel has conjured up with her sacred fire in the deep dark forest this week! You could feel the power as we danced around the flames calling up some ancient Gods from who knows where! Fantastic choreography, smooth, sensuous and vibrant, everyone was tapping their toes and singing along as they watched with big smiles on their faces!
Sarah – “Last Night, Good Night” by Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA Future Tone – [PV] – With Ginty
Sarah brought tears to my eyes watching this performance. A touching story of loss and missing someone and not being able to let go and say goodbye. A dream of reuniting somewhere, someday . Very deep and haunting, sweetly heartfelt, and the choreography echoed these emotions perfectly. Bravo Sarah and Ginty!
Eva – ‘ Trombone’ by AronChupa & Little Sis Nora
Sassy is the best word I can think of to describe Eva as she wiggled and jiggled in her fun and perfectly choreographed version of Trombone. Everyone was smiling (and the band played on), surprisingly never missing a beat though their eyes must’ve been watering trying to keep calm as she strutted her stuff across the floor!! Loved it Eva, you always know how to make people smile, and forget all their worries and you do it so well!
Chrissy – ‘ Counting Bodies Like Sheep to the Rhythm of the War Drums’ by A Perfect Circle With Cassie and Akiko
Super performance, creepy evil creatures and the heroine a harsh mistress but defending what she loves with al her power..super choreography and scene changes chrissy and the costumes were really awesome!
