Last week I had the pleasure of attend the UniverSoul Circus here in Chicago. Thank you to the promotions department at the UniverSoul Circus for gifting me with tickets. For those of you who have never had the pleasure of attending the UniverSoul circus you should definitely put it on your to-do list. For those of you who have attended you know that it is a great time for boy and girls and children of all ages.
As a single woman with no kids, a call to one of my bffs and a short ride to the circus made for a great mid-week meet up. We laughed, we took photos with the clown, we danced, we ooh and aahed and had a genuine great time. This is not the circus for you if you are not into adventure and if you are not in the mood to have a good time. There are many instances where the audience is invited to participate and who knows you just might find yourself inside of the ring dancing to the latest move music.
While this circus may not have as many animals in the show as other circuses. This circus does offer parents the opportunity to have their children ride the elephants and camels, before the show and during the intermission. For those of us who attended without kids, there were still opportunities to buy the light up lasers we enjoyed as children and indulge in cotton candy, snoballs, popcorn and all of the other circus treats.
From the moment the show begins, with it’s international performers from all across the world (literally), to the final bow, the show leaves you laughing, dancing and wanting more. Not only do you feel as if you can reach out and touch the performers, the space is so intimate, the talent of the individuals who perform life threatening feats with no safety nets leaves you in awe. I believe that the adults leave more excited than the children do.
This was a perfect girls night out. My friend and I enjoy ourselves and were able to relax and have fun on a Tuesday night. We laughed, we stared, we almost fainted when the BMX bikers did their stunts, we danced, we sang along and had a great time. The UniverSoul Circus is definitely not an event you would want to miss when it comes to your town. If you have already missed it look forward to next year. If it has not been to your town yet, get your tickets now.
Stay Blessed…….Stay Fabulous
