The artful equestrians of The Dancing Horses Theatre draw upon their collective experience from Ringling Bros. Circus and Universal Studios Orlando to delight spectators with performances of equine grace. In the current show, the Spring Spectacular, the team prances through a 300-seat, climate-controlled arena while performing saddled acrobatics and displaying the strength of the human-equine bond familiar only to lifelong riders and horse psychiatrists.
In between acts, exotic birds from Animal Gardens showcase their advanced intellect with awe-inspiring displays. The parrots roller-skate, play basketball, and sing in feathered choruses led by Echo, an Amazon parrot known for his performance on America’s Got Talent. Afterward, backstage tours wind behind the scenes, where trainers lead presentations on horse training before leading crowds to the stables to meet and pet the hoofed performers.
