Profiled on the PBS series Circus and dedicated participants in community-outreach programs, the international performers of the Big Apple Circus stretch one ring to new limits with this year's original show, Dream Big!. The all-new performance garnered glowing reviews from the Washington Post for its kid-friendly entertainment, talented entertainers, and fashion-forward clown shoes.

From ringside seats, eyes clearly catch the nuances of intricate acts, such as Melanie Chy, a third-generation circus performer who woos audiences with her body contortions, or the Shandong Acrobatic Troupe, a group of 11 young men ranging in age from 13 to 27 who walked away from the International Circus Festival of Monte Carlo in 2010 with the prestigious Gold Clown Award and a delicious recipe for crepes. Leading the charge in his final year with the circus is lovable clown Grandma, a marquee member of Big Apple Circus since 1982 and inductee into the International Clown Hall of Fame. Grandma has also been seen on CBS's Circus of the Stars and in multiple appearances in Macy's famed Thanksgiving Day Parade.
