On July 27th, 50 DAREarts children and families rushed to Cirque du Soleil‘s Grand Chapiteau through the pouring rain. The show, Luzia, described as “a waking dream of Mexico” was a feast for the eyes. Our attendees, almost all of whom had never seen a Cirque show were totally in awe of the incredible, superhuman feats of the Cirque artists, of the gorgeous music and sets and overall air of magic created under that tent.
Everyone was buzzing with energy and excitement after the show – they loved it! It was the kind of beautiful, inspiring experience that will stick with them as a shining beacon of the power of human creativity.
