The Circus Arts Conservatory celebrated 25 years of dazzling feats and circus operations with a spirited fundraiser and show on Jan. 27.
The annual benefit marked the quarter-century anniversary with more than 350 guests dressing up in their most colorful circus designs for an evening of performance and philanthropy at the circus Big Top at Nathan Benderson Park.
After an hour of mingling, guests filled the circus tent to enjoy a circus performance that featured acts from Circus Arts Conservatory students as well as veteran performers the Alexis Brothers and Maryna Tkachenko and Anastasiia Kornieieva from Ukraine. The performance segment concluded with a sweeping outreach act from a variety of students.
There were more surprises in store. It was announced at the gala that the upcoming Wonder Ball event in May would feature none other than musician Steve Aoki as the main entertainment.
