Directed by eighth-generation circus performer and Lone Star Circus founder Fanny Kerwich, Cirque Banquisté delights audiences of all ages with magnificent displays of flexibility, agility, and grace. Aerialists scoff at gravity as they twine and flip through the air while a juggler and a balancing duo bends physics to suit their needs. Magician Jeff Lee captivates minds with logic-defying sleight of hand, and The Bronx Cowboy showcases trick roping and how to secure one’s horse to a bellhop. Clowns Slappy and Monday transition each act with comical pratfalls and jokes that tickle the audience's funny brains. VIP ticketholders can kick off New Year's Eve celebrations by taking in the dazzling performance. A meet and greet with performers, accented with platters of finger food and a champagne toast, encourages dialogue about how to shoot oneself out of a cannon properly. Seats in section A abut the stage, allowing spectators to see every sequin up close and shake feet with the aerialists. _Children aged 3 and younger are welcome to sit on a guardian's lap for an additional $6._
Lone Star Circus School
Fanny Kerwich, Lone Star Circus’s founder and current creative director, was born with the circus in her blood. An eighth-generation member of a renowned French circus family, she has been performing since age 6, delighting international audiences at Paris’s Lido and Moulin Rouge, Germany’s Circus Roncalli, and San Francisco’s Teatro ZinZanni.
Fanny’s performing experience and artistic vision now guide the nonprofit Lone Star Circus, which is a two-branched operation. Its performance troupe’s grace and athleticism shine during shows. The circus’s school hosts classes for adults and children throughout the week. Beginners’ classes cover a variety of circus skills, from trapeze and aerial silk work to acrobatics and lyra, also known as aerial hoop. Learning to lift and hold your own body weight is a good way to get stronger and see muscle definition quickly.
