UniverSOUL Circus Dallas 2013

28 Jul

There’s a major party coming to Dallas this August and if you like to have fun, this party was designed JUST for you! It’s happening under the Big Top next door to Southwest Center Mall located off Highway 67. This year the UniverSOUL Circus has an all new show lined up for the 2013 tour, and the all-star lineup of talent is ready to crank up the heat even more when they arrive to DFW August 7th!

This isn’t your typical circus where you sit far away and spectate the entire time. The UniverSOUL Circus forces you to get involved with energizing music, chants, laughs, exercises and a fully interactive program in a more intimate (but spacious enough) circus tent. You won’t get stomped on by an elephant or anything, but you may find yourself doing the “Wobble” with a chimpanzee!

Chinese aerialists, tigers, pretzel twisting contortionists, crazy cool clowns, talented dancers (both young and old) and much more are expected! Rated as one of the Top 3 circuses in America, the 2013 UniverSOUL Circus brings to Dallas a plethora of circus arts and theatre with familiar pop songs, Latin Beats and Hip Hop tracks as an added bonus to get the crowd hype.

All may appear quiet and normal as you pass the yellow and red big top off Hwy 67, but if you pull over and actually take a look inside, you’ll step foot into a completely different world of culture, tamed yet entertaining wildlife, dazzling lights, heart-pumping rhythm and beats, sensational acrobats and eye-popping tricks mixed with a sample of various cultures given by an incredible, diverse cast of performers. Make your Back-To-School treat a good one for the entire family and close out the summer with a sizzling show that all ages can enjoy! It’s the most interactive circus around!
