GRAND RAPIDS,Mich - It's been seen by 4.5 million people  world-wide, and now audiences in Grand Rapids can see Cirque du Soleil OVO for  themselves.

First show is Wednesday, December 14th at 7:30 p.m. at Van Andel Arena.

OVO is described as high-energy, dynamic, and colorful, featuring 50 performers from 12 different countries.

FOX 17 got a behind the scenes looks at the performers training and their costumes which travel with their own washing machines and dryers.

Nicolas Chabot is the show's  publicist who knows just how much work goes into a show like this.

"I think it's that everything has to be well planned, because with 19 truck, 100 people... we have to move fast because it's one city per week."

Our own Annie Szatkowski even joined in on a little training session with Trampoline and Tumbling Artists Oleg and Nicoli.

She said they offered her a spot in the show, but we thinks it's best to leave this one to the professionals.

OVO runs through Sunday December 18th, with the final show at 5:00 p.m.

Tickets can be purchased here.
