Paul wows a volunteer by performing acrobatics and Cyr Wheel. He then proposes they spin in the wheel together. A twist ending leads to Duo Cyr Wheel, Quick Change and Hand-to-Hand revealing Stephanie as his fiancé. The Engagement Ring Show Puts A New Spin On Love!
The Engagement Ring Show takes the audience on an action-packed journey from blindfolded warm-up tricks to an award winning Cyr Wheel performance. Paul delivers a hilarious blend of love and fear-themed comedy as he convinces a volunteer to hold onto him and spin in the wheel together. The show takes a surprising twist when Stephanie undergoes a magical quick-change and their epic love at first sight story is revealed. They finish with a romantic Hand-to-Hand routine.
Paul and Stephanie have performed all across Canada, USA, New Zealand and Thailand. Their show is always evolving and they take a lot from their experiences to enrich the script and comedy of the show. Stephanie studied dance at Halifax Dance and circus at Atlantic Cirque. Paul graduated from The National Circus School and also won the bronze medal at the 2013 Cyr Wheel World Championships.

I had the pleasure of working with The Engagement Ring Show at the 28th Halifax International Busker Festival (July 30 – August 4, 2014).
After going through hundreds of applications, I knew they would be a perfect fit for the festival.
They are the full package. A combination of strength and comedy and absolute magical chemistry which lights up any stage. Audience members of all ages laughing and applauding in unison were a staple sound at every show - which led to their placing 2nd in our People’s Choice Award.
The Engagement Ring Show went above and beyond to achieve a caliber of skill and performance of the highest level, which as a producer is one of the most important qualities in performers today. Their professionalism on and off the stage made them a pleasure to work with on a daily basis and I would highly recommend The Engagement Ring Show for any future events/festivals
The beauty of their story brings everyone to their knees in want of proposing to their someon ...e special!

The Engagement Ring Show was a major highlight at the inaugural GlowFair Festival. Paul and his fiancé pulled in crowds between 4,000 - 7,000 over the two days of the festival and the audiences were captivated with the performances. These artists are true pro’s in every sense and I would highly recommend them for any special event.

I got in touch with Paul and Stephanie about a week before an event and made an outrageous request of them to put something together for a circus themed kids event.
Not only did they deliver in time and with a great act, they were enthusiastic and great to work with. I would not hesitate in working with them again and only hope I get the chance while they’re in New Zealand.

Dear Paul and Stephanie
Thank you so much for your performance at our end of year party held recently on the Wellington Waterfront at the Portrait Gallery.
Your performance was exceptional and added a wonderful surprise element for our staff. It was a highlight for many to see such a talented duo perform an amazing show especially for them.
We were very impressed that you were able to undertake your performance in a venue that you viewed only moments before you performed and that you had only arrived in New Zealand days before. We were definitely spell bound as you told your story and performed fantastic feats together within a few metres of where we sat. It was exciting for us and we feel privileged to have seen such a spectacular professional performance.
Our emphasis over the last few months has been on team work and your performance was inspirational and a true testament to working together as a team!
We wish you both every success in New Zealand and would have no hesitation in re ...commending your performance to others.

We booked The Engagement Ring Show for our fund-raising event because one of my colleagues had recommended them to us. We were told that they were really amazing and so I have to admit that I had very high expectations towards their show. We were extremely satisfied! Paul & Stephanie amazed us with their professionalism on and off stage! Not only did they deliver a brilliant and extraordinary performance full of amazing stunts that we thought couldn't be done, but they made it all look so elegant! On behalf of Share to Change Project, I would like to thank you very much for everything and to congratulate you both on your real engagement!
Wishing you the best,

If I had to describe the Engagement Ring Show with one word it would be "AMAZING". This show is packed with a healthy balance of humour, romance, and raw talent. Truly one performance that captivated the audience every time!!! I have not had the opportunity to work with Paul and Stephanie before this year's festival, but after meeting both of them and experiencing the show first hand I can say this is truly a world class act!!! With a winning combination of two of the most fantastic performers and an original concept made The Engagement Ring Show a fantastic choice for our festival! I honestly hope to have the pleasure of working with them again in the future!!

We wish to congratulate you on your remarkable performance and extend a warm thank you for your participation at the Festival de cirque Vaudreuil-Dorion, 2013. It was a real pleasure to have you on board. You were well organized, safe and enthusiastic and your professionalism throughout the experience was a delight and very valuable for us as organizers. Your presence on the Grock stage was greatly appreciated by the crowd! Kids of all ages had a lot of nice comments about your performance, among which, your ability to captivate them from beginning to end. Moreover, you attracted the crowd as soon as your show started. Expert eyes also noted the high quality and technical difficulty of your number. Not easy to perform a Cyr Wheel routine on the street! You both charmed us with physical and verbal humour. Very refreshing for all, but particularly for parents who appreciated that it suited a large audience. Keep us informed of your new creations. We would love to welcome you again in Vau ...dreuil-Dorion!

We hosted our First Annual Spring Kickoff Festival at Faneuil Hall Marketplace in downtown Boston. We were lucky to be able to host "The Engagement Ring Show" all the way from Ottawa, Canada. This unique and highly entertaining show was a special treat for the visitors to our property. Paul and Stephanie were both very gracious and a pleasure to work with before, during, and even after the festival. You can see from the quality and level of difficulty of their show that they are truly dedicated to what they do and consistently put on an amazing performance for their audience. The show was suitable for all audiences, and was very unique in a sense that it told a story. The humour was very funny and completely appropriate for all ages, and based on the focus and reaction of the audience, you could tell that they were completely drawn into the performance. We were very satisfied with the quality of the show and the professionalism in which they conducted themselves. My team and I would mo ...st certainly recommend The Engagement Ring Show to any group that was considering booking them for a festival or show. We cannot wait to have them back!

The Engagement Ring Show is a heartwarming, endearing and exciting show that appeals to adults and youth with its universally enjoyable theme of love and its astounding feats of acrobatics and physical ability. Paul even altered the show to appeal more to my event's attendees while maintaining cohesion with my overall theme. Not only was The Engagement Ring Show extremely well received by the audience, it has been a pleasure to work with Paul and Stephanie! They were highly professional and pleasant. I would recommend The Engagement Ring Show for any event!
