The Przystawik family & Dancing Fountains
As the Wallenda family is known for high wire acts…
As the Zambelli family is known for fireworks displays…
So the Przystawik family is known for musical fountain spectaculars!
Three generations of Przystawiks have gained international recognition as the world’s foremost leaders in water, light and music productions.
In the 1920′s, German inventor, Otto Przystawik, conceived the idea of combining the beauty of fountains with the music and gracefulness of ballet. Thus, “Przystawik’s Dancing Fountains” were born. In the beginning, he created fountains on a small scale for display in restaurants and stores.
Dancing Waters : Fountain Show
Interrupted by World War II, he resumed work in 1950 and created an impressive fountain show at the Resi Ballroom and restaurant in Berlin. Accompanying live music, the spectacular display quickly became a popular local attraction.
In 1952 the dancing fountains appeared at an exhibition in Berlin, where they captured the attention of a brilliant New York showman, Harold Steinman. Enthralled by the beauty and spectacle of the shows, Steinman purchased dozens over the next several decades. Naming them the “Dancing Waters”, his New York company sent the shows on tour throughout the United States and the rest of the world.
Waltzing Waters ®
During the 1950′s, Otto and his son, Gunter, worked together in their German factory advancing their musical fountain designs. In 1965, Gunter moved to Florida, and with the passing of his father, continued the development of the family craft. After several dramatic breakthroughs, he named his new shows the “Waltzing Waters ®” to distinguish them from the older “dancing fountains” designed by his father.
Liquid Fireworks ®
Today, Michael Przystawik is at the helm and has incorporated the latest in space age technology, creating even more advanced designs. Heralding the dawn of a new millennium, “Waltzing Waters ® – Liquid Fireworks ®” continue to set the world standard for water, light and music spectaculars.
