The first thing people notice about Circus Vargas is its big-top tent. Hand-fashioned in Milan from 90,000 square feet of cerulean-blue and sunshine-yellow fabric, the canopy, along with spotlights and saw-dust-covered floors, completed the illusion of an elegant lost era when used in the 2011 film Water for Elephants. The last thing people notice is the absence of animals. They're too busy gaping at a man balancing a 12-step ladder with his mouth.
Keeping its marvels strictly human, Circus Vargas builds on a 40-year history by blending classic feats of fearlessness with surprising new tricks. The show features magic tricks along with a skilled hand balancer, a speed juggler, and the wheel of destiny.

When Rachel Stegman opened Circus School of Arizona in 2007, she had a passion for aerial arts and a few interested students. In a few short years, word of her alternative fitness and performance classes spread swiftly, and interest boomed—today, her school boasts hundreds of graduates.
Inside the studio, vibrant silks hang from the high ceilings, holding students of all experience levels who twirl and spin above the ground. On the springy mats, others stretch, practice with their hula hoops, or refine their stage presence. Aside from its classes and camps, the school is also known for the gravity-defying magic it lends to local events. Fundraising galas, magazine launches, music festivals, and corporate events have all gotten a boost from the school's skilled performers.

At a Knockerballs party, everyone stays in their own little bubble—although there's nothing antisocial about it. Clad in massive, transparent, inflatable spheres that sit over the shoulders, players bounce off each other gleefully without risking grass stains or bruises. Korvers4U supplies globes to groups planning a knock-out soccer game, trying out previously impossible acrobatic tricks, or just playing a round of person bowling.
