For one weekend only, The Circus Arts Conservatory proudly presents the 2014 Sahib Shrine Circus. On Friday, October 3rd and Saturday, October 4th the Sailor Circus Arena, located at 2075 Bahia Vista Street in Sarasota, will be home to three performances that are guaranteed to entertain circus fans of all ages. This year, the Shrine Circus has double the amount of performing acts to bring Sarasota their biggest show yet. It’s filled with twice as much excitement, twice as many thrilling stunts and incredible human feats, and much, much more!
The action-packed show kicks off with a celebrated Ringmaster who is a 17th generation circus performer and renowned daredevil star of the Bauer’s Circus Maximus, Joseph Bauer, Jr. He will also join the dynamic performance line-up with his attention-grabbing Wheel of Destiny too! Other incredible acts will be performed by Noe España and his family, including mind-blowing contortion from daughter, Noemi, unbelievable head-balancing trapeze from his wife, Vivien, superior Chinese yo-yo from his son, Elan and thrilling motorbike stunts on an incline wire from Noe himself. There will be hilarious clowning from the Sahib Shiners, awe-inspiring aerial acrobatics from our hometown Sailor Circus students, and the fun doesn’t stop there! The nationally-acclaimed Jennifer Walker Herriott will continue the excitement with her talented steeds and amazing exotic animals. Neecha Braun provides tail-wagging entertainment as her prancing pups wag their way into your heart, and there will be masterful Risley balancing and maneuvering from Miles Ashton and George Coronas. Other greats like the fast-moving Elena Tsarkova, will provide astonishing quick change, and juggler-extraordinaire, Vladimir Tsarkov will keep the cheers coming. “It’s going to be a really awesome performance that everyone will enjoy,” promises Pedro Reis, Circus Arts Conservatory Co-Founder and CEO.
In Sahib Shrine Circus tradition, the scheduled shows will kick off with a complimentary performance put on for local school children throughout Bradenton, Sarasota and North Port and then follow with three additional ticketed shows, available for purchase, for the general public. “We are pleased to help a fellow non-profit organization and produce another fantastic circus arts performance for our community,” says Reis. “The Circus Arts Conservatory specializes in producing entertaining and professional circus shows and our presentation of the 2014 Sahib Shrine Circus will be a fun and affordable show for families to enjoy.”
