Ringling Brothers Circus is Coming to Town

Last week we were singing about Santa Claus coming to town, and this week I’m excited for Ringling brothers coming to town January 12-16 at the Amway Arena. Orlando attendees will be the first to cheer on Ringling’s first female ringmaster and the brand’s 147 year history. Kristen Michelle Wilson is a dynamic performer with tremendous stage presence and exceptional vocal skills. She beat out hundreds of candidates in a nationwide open audition process to earn the prestigious role in Circus XTREME®.

JLI RinglingThe Greatest Show On Earth, one of our favorite events of the year, is coming to town. Children of all ages will marvel at the pageantry, glorious costumes, magnificent animals acts, plus death-defying feats that thrill and chill and I couldn’t be happier about being invited to be a blog ambassador.

Ringmaster Johnathan Lee Iverson guides Paulo the Legend Seeker on his quest to discover real, living legends. Audiences will believe the unbelievable when Paulo meets both Pegasus and a unicorn!

I’m most excited to see…

—big cat presenter Alexander Lacey, whose family has raised more than eleven generations of lions and nine generations of tigers.

—the Riders of the Wind Cossack horseback riders (I find myself squirming and moving in my seat to “help” the riders in their tricks)hourseback riders

—motorcycle daredevils, the Torres Family

—magnificent Asian elephants

—the acrobat troupe perched atop only a pair of bicycles

What I haven’t seen is the new double-wide, high-flying trapeze act! I’m nervous just thinking about it!

Also on my “can’t wait list” is the pre-show event. Free to all ticketholders, the All Access Pre-Show allows circus fans to learn juggling and balancing skills, meet the performers, get autographs, take photos and enter to win a one-of-a-kind Pachyderm Painting.

CIRCUS XTREME at the Amway Center, Jan 8–11

extreme circus photosThe Greatest Show On Earth returns to the Amway Center January 8–11, 2015 as Circus Xtreme! Ringmaster David Shipman guides audiences on aRigmaster quest around the world with the help of hilarious adventure seekers, Alex and Irina Emelin.

THIS circus promises to be unlike any you’ve seen before. Feld, creators of Nuclear Cowboyz, have integrated freestyle BMX riders and their over-the-top jumps into the more traditional circus features like clowns, and extraordinarily talented animals and high-flying trapeze artists to create Circus Xtreme!

Mongolian riders begin the show by sending arrows flying across the arena sky. This all-female troupe displays their skills in one of the most unique acts this year, performing a series of tricks and maneuvers atop elegant two-hump camels.

Audience members will be on a first name basis with these, and other magnificent animals, including glorious horses, and prancing pachyderms.
