Nick Penney, born December 10th 1988 Nick's passion for the performing arts began with his love for magic at 8 years old, but didn't stop there. Having taken martial arts from an early age, Nick had wielded a sword first hand. Later when he was 12 years old he witnessed sword swallowing via a documentary, couldn't believe it was real, but was fascinated! Nick began extensive research on sword swallowing, human anatomy, fire art, and sideshow history in general; eventually teaching himself all the traditional sideshow acts.

In early August of 2010 Nick coined the term "Acrobatic Sword Swallowing" when he swallowed a sword and executed a cartwheel! Since then Nick has continued to raise the bar, redefining "Mind Over Matter", and breaking world records; including 'Most Swords Swallowed While Suspended Up Side Down'.

As of 2011 Nick has presented his family friendly variety show titled "Still Alive!" at bars, private functions, restaurants, & festivals through out Maine and New England.

His unique arsenal of extreme skills may be what captures peoples attention, but it's his charm and passion for entertainment that really draws you in.
Through years of training and experience, interacting with the public, he's learned a thing or two about entertainment and what it takes to have a top notch show. The perfect balance of comedy and education that's proven to make a lasting impression. A one of a kind inspirational speaker using extreme sword swallowing, fire eating, and other high profile/high energy stunts to draw your audience to the edge of their seats with a funny, up-beat, and up lifting program!

Looking for entertainment that's unique, fun, interesting, funny, intense, special, a show everyone will enjoy, an experience no one will forget?

The acrobatic Duet Skies introduces an artistical and innovative circus acts Revolving Pole Act, Aerial Silk and Aerial Ring. The unique stage property Revolving Pole was designed by Valeriy in 2004 and presented at internationally acclaimed television show TV2DF (ZPF) – Fernesch Garten (Germany) in 2004 and at Fabio Marino show (Nuovo Circo) in Italy in 2006.

Revolving Pole Act is a specialty that depicts a story of two lovers presenting a harmonic combination of unique technical skills, unusual equipment and incredible tenderness. This beautiful couple is full of passionate elegance. A true feast for the eyes.

Aerial silk is a hypnotic show. Alla rises high airwards performing sightly poses and tricks. This is really an eye appeal to contemplate the beauty of acting and musicality of performance to the last second of music.
