THE headline performers at this year's Leeton Show will be the experienced entertainers from First Light Entertainment.
Diane and Daryl Paulger will be dazzling with a fire show on Friday night, amazing the crowd with their stilt walking on Saturday and also hosting a circus workshop.
This dynamic duo have been in the entertainment industry since 1998 having discovered their passion for stilt walking in the Caribbean.
They began stilt walking in New Zealand before first appearing in Australia in 2001. They have also strutted their stilts in the USA, performing on Hollywood Boulevard and at the iconic Burning Man festival.
Now Melbourne-based, the pair continues to tour nationally and has performed at events as diverse as Rainbow Serpent, Peats Ridge, Island Vibe Festivals, Darwin Festival and Fringe, and at about 25 agricultural shows around the country every year.
As well as a range of interactive and wacky stilt walking characters, the pair specialise in eye catching performances, such as choreographed fire shows combining stilt walking and fire dancing, and ultraviolet light shows with elements of dance, stilts, illusion and movement, and can also conduct co-ordination and twirling workshops.
"We are so looking forward to the Leeton Show where we will be performing our 'It's Flammable' fire show on Friday night," Diane said.
"This fire show involves one fire performer on stilts and one fire dancer at ground level, with fire sticks and poi of all sizes, a fire hula hoop, fire taming and fire eating.
"Our stilt walking characters on Saturday will be Senor and Senorita los Tall Persona and The Spaghetti Cowboys.
"We will also be operating our family circus workshop on Saturday, teaching poi dancing plate spinning hula hoop juggling and more."
Poi is a form of dance movement using weights on the ends of tethers, which are swung through rhythmical patterns.
Diane is now a globally renowned tutor thanks to the international success of the Art of Poi tutorial DVD.
Leeton Show Society secretary Janne Skewes was looking forward to the performances.
"The circus workshop will be for anyone and will be held on Saturday at 11am on the grassed area," she said.
"You just need to show up
"It should be a good one for the kids."
