MR. & MRS. G. Crossbow Act
Director/Choreographer & Yoga Instructor/Teacher Trainer

I have lived in Las Vegas for most of my life and pretty much grew up backstage around many different shows. In fact, you could say that I was born into entertainment because I hail from over six generations of circus performers. My mother was crowned "Queen of The Circus" and collectively my family has held over 5 world records. 

I have worked as a professional dancer/singer/stuntman & choreographer for over twenty years. I was an original cast member and fight captain for the musical “Saturday Night Fever” on Broadway as well as for the First International Company of “Elton John and Tim Rice's Aida” in Amsterdam (where I studied Shorinjikempo martial arts extensively with Master Mike Brenkman). 

Amsterdam is where I met my beautiful wife, Naomi, who was also in Aida and assistant Dance Captain. She is Dutch and we go back to Holland every year to visit her awesome family.

I was the Stunt Director & Choreographer for the first Equity National Tour of “Spider-Man Live,” which enjoyed sold out performances at Radio City Music Hall, and the stunt coordinator for the Goodspeed production & Equity National Tour of Pippin. 

In addition to choreographing and stunt directing Naomi and I are certified and registered (RYT) Ashtanga Yoga instructors since 2005. We have been teaching an assortment of Ashtanga Vinyasa, Power Vinyasa (with poses up to 2nd, 3rd & 4th series) and of course Dragon Vinyasa classes at numerous studios and events in Las Vegas. We are honored to be the first yoga ambassadors to represent lululemon athletica in Las Vegas for the Fashion Show Mall store. We also do yoga workshops, retreats, teacher trainings, private & group classes.

Naomi and I are the founders of the Dragon Vinyasa system, which combines the ancient techniques of Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga with Shorinjikempo & Tai Chi Martial Arts. These classes are designed as a fun and safe way to build lean, strong & flexible muscles. Prior experience in yoga or martial arts is not required and these classes are open to all levels; everyone is welcome to attend and accepted exactly as they are.

In fact, Dragon Vinyasa was created out of necessity as a warm up for our death defying crossbow specialty performance. In this highly skilled & extremely dangerous routine we demonstrate the ultimate in trust and focus as we shoot cigarettes out of mouth, playing cards out hand and apples off the head. 

We have been blessed to work with some great directors & choreographers, and there is still more to come ;-)

We produced a topless revue called The Viper Vixens that integrates dance with weapons and martial arts at O'Sheas Casino, but are looking for a new home.
