Hypno Hick Comedy Hypnosis Show

Hypno Hick Comedy Hypnotism Show, Covey Arts Center, Provo, Utah, Utah County, Utah Valley, FamilyWitness a volunteer eat an onion like an apple! That’s right: they bite into it just like and apple and love it; no tears or bad taste. They are so happy to eat it. It is their favorite thing to eat all weekend—until the hypnotist wakes him up, that is. Then the tears fall like rain drops in a monsoon and the mouthful of onion is expectorated faster than a rocket car at the salt flats. He, of course, is promptly given water and breath mints.

Scenes like this play out at every Hypno Hick Comedy Hypnosis Show, which are almost always accompanied with sell-out crowds. Come see for yourself the power of hypnosis. See volunteers rush the stage to volunteer to be hypnotized and asked to do some amazing but mostly silly things. They enjoy singing and dancing like The King of Rock and Roll, swimming with Flipper the dolphin, and hearing music come from their friend’s shoe.

Hypno Hick has been performing for years and is a Master Hypnotist. He has performed at comedy clubs and schools, including the University of Utah, BYU, UVSC and Utah State, as well as Brighton High, Springville, West, Skyline and many other high schools around Utah, Wyoming, Idaho, Montana and Nevada.

BYU Cougarettes, Brigham Young University, Dance Team, Cheerleaders, Provo, Utah, LDS, Mormons, Covey Arts CenterThe Cougarettes are categorized as a precision dance team, but in fact the scope and breadth of their focus is deeper and much more varied. The Cougarettes are fluid in jazz, funk, lyrical, character, high kick, and military. Dancers are required to have knowledge and practical abilities in ballet, modern, and jazz technique. They must also maintain their growth and progression in each of these areas while they are members of the Cougarette performing team.

The Cougarettes are the 2010 National Collegiate Dance Team Champions. They were also awarded the title of Grand Champions, with the highest score overall. They also won the award for Best Choreography. They have been named as one of the top 25 Collegiate Dance Teams in the Nation in “Dance Spirit” magazine. The Cougarettes were National Collegiate Dance Team Champions in 2007, 2006, 2005, 2001, 1999, 1998, 1997, after winning the NDA Collegiate Cheer and Dance Team Championships. Eight titles as well as three top four finishes have made the Cougarettes truly a team to watch. They are credited with raising the level of competitive collegiate dance teams to a new and respected level. They were also USA (United Spirit Association) National Champions in 2005 and 2006.

The Cougarettes are recognized as having a high level of technical excellence and advanced level of difficulty from the dancers and within the choreography that they present. Becoming a member of the Cougarette dance team is very competitive as anywhere from 100 to 150 hopeful applicants audition each year. Interested dancers come from across the country to audition for a spot on the team of 16 dancers. The Cougarettes must be in peak physical form and possess a wholesome appearance with an incredible sense of stage presence. Energy, excitement, and professionalism are all synonymous with the BYU Cougarettes.

Former Cougarettes have also been hired as performers for Walt Disney Co. (National and International), Universal Studios, Opryland, various cruise lines, Broadway and touring productions, Professional Dance Companies, as well as National Basketball Association (NBA) dancers.
