CHRISTMAS EXTRAVADANZA by EUPHORIA Dance Troupe
This week (December 17th - 21st, 2014) has been the spectacular concluding set of four shows by the SecondLife® Euphoria dance troupe that was granted access to Linden Lab's LEA12 sim for the past 3 months.
Euphoria's CHRISTMAS EXTRAVADANZA production showed that they wanted to leave LEA12 with a super-nova bang that wow'ed all those that experienced it.
Toy was lucky enough to experience the Saturday afternoon show and wanted show you all a small glimpse of this amazing show!
The sleigh rode the show guests through the entire sim, stopping at each holiday stage where members of the Euphoria dancers performed a choreographed dance to perfectly selected music. When the dance completed, our Santa tour guide moved the guest laden sleigh to the next stage to witness the next music / dance / stage performance. I counted 11 stages where the Euphoria team performed for the sleigh guests !
The sleigh itself is an amazing feat of SecondLife engineering as it held over 25 riders - some guests actually sat on the reindeer and the edges of the sleigh when there were no more seats! To create a form of transportation that could even attach and move over 25 laggy avatars is amazing.
The sleigh was pulled by Santa's reindeer and other than a couple laggy hesitations / stops during the rides between stages, it went quite smoothly. Even when there were unexpected pauses, our Santa tour guide entertained the audience as did the audience itself in fun entertaining local chat!
Here are some photos I captured during our amazing ride through Euphoria's magical Christmas ExtravaDanza....
Below is a clip of the official Christmas ExtravaDanza show by the Euphoria Team that includes the show times and all the credits they wished to acknowledge about this amazing production:
