I'm not sure, but I think they did it quite well actually,, although I didn't really care for the color changing silks at the beginning lol

The levitation (gimmick) used is a short version of the super X gimmick, it was made specially for this TV show to be used on that stage....

Really? We're going to come down on dancers for doing the color-changing silks? Their magic may not be the greatest, although it seemed to accomplish their goal, but maybe we ought to examine what a lot of magicians call "dance"!

Oh, no offense taken at all! I just found it amusing that the silks would become a topic of conversation vs. the actual levitation illusion!

The illusion was part of the dance, it wasn't an illusion show, so them doing a color changing silk (which looks like the ones Bob and I sell), then going into the suspension was just value added into the act. Doing a levi, Im wondering why they didn't do a Zombie to start of with, then segue into the suspension, that would have been more fluid.

Remember there's a difference between a suspension and a levi. They did the suspension since it was part of the routein and fairly easy to learn.

Frank, magicians can't dance. LOL Ask Joanie Spina.

Apparently, one week all the crews (or is it "crus") were required to incorporate an illusion into their acts. There's more at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3FDOaN3wvIU&NR=1.
