Variety In Motion was the Baltimore duo of Rick and Mardene Rubbio (they no longer perform together) who, as past People's Choice winners, were natural audience favorites. They did a six-torch passing routine on six-foot unicycles complete with variations by Rick. On the ground they did a dynamite, up-tempo passing routine choreographed to music. They move from this to a three-club stealing routine with lots of interesting steals (from both sides and below) as well as drop backs. Their show was very tight, well rehearsed and effective.
