The organization behind “Cirque Banquiste!” is Dallas’ own Lone Star Circus, a non-profit with the purpose of promoting circus acts through training and performance. Director Fanny Kerwich comes from a lineage of talented circus performers, being an eighth generation artist originally from France. She started teaching circus arts years ago at Dallas International School. By 2006 Lone Star Circus Arts Center was founded in her studio. The Lone Star Circus School not only trains adult circus artists, but provides recreational and professional training for kids too. Lone Star Circus is good for giving you circus-themed entertainment for fundraisers and civic or corporate events alike.
Bring in 2012 with Cirque Banquiste!, an inspiring show for the entire family. The Lone Star Circus will hold six performances between December 29th and January 1st at The Rosewood Center for Family Arts located in Dallas. Tickets range between $20 – $45.
