About Orlando Circus School
Each year, hundreds of people beg Cirque du Soleil to teach them how to do what they do—only to be told to get off the stage and return to their seat. Orlando Circus School gives the customers an "in" that doesn't interrupt any shows. The school's founders, Andrei Roublev and Irina Roubleva, both worked in the famous troupe during their nearly 20 years in the circus industry, and a number of their instructors are still active Cirque du Soleil members today.
Orlando Circus School's studio is equipped with all the accoutrements needed for building one's crowd-wowing skills—plus moveable, colored lights for staging full performances. There, students of all ages can hurt gravity's feelings on the flying trapeze and catch one another in mid-air. Hanging silks and Spanish webs treat the participants to the sensation of pirouetting perpendicular to the floor. Even if students prefer to remain earthbound, they can hone their juggling, cartwheel across the floor inside a German wheel, practice high-jumps and flips on a trampoline or practice tightrope-walking at a height that would hardly terrify an ant.
