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!

UniverSOUL Circus Returns to Dallas

29 Jul

What’s the only circus where you’ll hear “Walk It Out” played over the loud speakers?? You got it! The UniverSOOOOOUUULL Circus! This highly interactive show is the third featured in “Circus Season” here in North Texas. From August 2nd to August 7th the UniverSoul Circus will be in Dallas at Southwest Center Mall located at Highway 67 & I-20.

My first Soulful circus experience took place in Maryland a few years ago, (the summer of 2007 to be exact) and we had a great time! A majority of the circus performers were African American or West Indian. There was hip hop music and R&B music that played throughout, but what really distinguished this show from the rest was the level of interaction with the audience. Of course you’re in a smaller tent also, but I could literally smell the elephants as they came and went. (eww, Thanks Babar.) No, but it’s not that bad. You just feel like you’re a part of everything that’s going on.

Universoul Circus was founded about 17 years ago. Cedric Walker envisioned a show that presented all the various talents African Americans had to offer, besides the typical singing and dancing. It was 1994 when Walker’s dream of “Hip Hop under the Big Top” came into reality in the parking lot of Atlanta Fulton County Stadium and the UniverSOUL Circus has remained in operation ever since. Year after year the circus visited more and more cities. In ’99 they toured 19 cities, and by 2005, 32! Their first international destination was South Africa.

It is a full-on party under the big top for the whole family. You’ll enjoy tigers turn tricks, acrobats, high wire, break dancing, Caribbean limbo, comedy, magical illusions, Trinidad and Tobago showgirls, a Chinese aerial dance like you’ve never seen before and more! Ringmaster Tony Tone will keep you laughing, dancing and wondering why you never tried this out before. Walker’s full-blown big top circus has been touring across the States for over a decade now. They come every year around the same time to Dallas and they’re back again so get your tickets if you’re ready for a show you’re sure not to forget.

Begin the month of August with a Bang and head over to Southwest Center Mall where you’ll spot the blue and yellow big top. If you don’t see it right away just follow the bass coming from outside of Sears. If you missed out on tickets to Dralion, just consider this your own Cirque du SOUL-ayyyeee!!

Til the next DFWH post……..we wish you…
