The show's title, "Night of Champions," is a tribute to the winning character of this hardworking team. The Aquianas have been the top team in the Eastern region for the last 10 years and have consistently placed among the most elite teams in the country. The girls will swim routines they have perfected over the 2010-11 competitive season, demonstrating the skills of beginner swimmers all the way up to those competing at the international level.

"From the youngest intermediate swimmer to our most experienced athletes, the girls on this team show huge commitment to the sport," Jen Muzyk, director of synchronized swimming said. "It's gratifying to work with such a young, yet focused group of athletes."
Like figure-skating, synchronized swimming is a competitive sport that is entertaining to watch -- from the glitzy swim suits and upbeat music to the explosive and gravity-defying lifts.
Tickets will be sold at the door and will cost $10 for adults and $5 for children. All children under the age of 5 will be admitted for free.
