The Jordan World Circus—also known as Las Cruces Shrine Circus—keeps hands applauding with a two-hour family-friendly spectacle packed with exotic animals, hilarious clowns, and gravity-defying acts. Although acts may vary, audiences can expect to crane their necks skyward as the Toscano Troupe balances itself on a half-inch wire and builds a seven-person pyramid. Equally audacious about performing in high altitudes, Romania natives Giorgio and Lusia Marinof hang on trapezes by their teeth and toes while contorting their bodies into seemingly impossible back plunges and layouts.
The Steeple family’s third generation of humane bear handlers corrals a bunch of bandana-wearing brown bruins from the Wild West and encourages their fuzzy friends to show off their many talents. Trained since they were cubs, these bears push stagecoaches, walk on wagon wheels, and jump through fire, all in an attempt to wake up from three-month snoozes that were only supposed to be 10-minute power naps. The high-octane entertainment reaches a fever pitch when motorcycle daredevils speed through the arena and inside the dramatic Globe of Death.
