Circus in Ridgewood

Select Local Merchants

While living the life of a peripatetic juggling duo in 1970s Europe, Paul Binder and Michael Christensen had a dream: a non-profit circus that would combine community outreach with shows by the world?s best performers. Today a rotating cast of acrobats, clowns, and daredevils tour with a menagerie of exotic animals. Led by animal trainer Jenny Vidbel. The circus's ponies, Arabian horses, and dogs perform sprightly routines, learned under humane training regimens based on positive reinforcement. Shows take place under the big top, custom designed so that every seat is within 50 feet of the ring. The tent is also engineered to keep showgoers comfortable with a raisable cupola that allows warm air to escape as guests relax on comfy cushions that keep incubating eggs from cracking in back pockets.

In this children's musical production, adventuring superstar Dora the Explorer and her best friend, Boots, make the leap from Nick Jr. to the stage. Pestered as usual by the nefarious Swiper, the bilingual duo entreats audiences for help in unraveling the cunning fox's puzzles, fostering problem-solving skills in the preschool set and encouraging any backpacks in attendance to reveal their sentience. After the show, Groupon customers enjoy an exclusive meet and greet with the stars and should bring a camera for the resulting photo opportunity.
