Ranked among Ticketmaster's Top 25 Most Requested Family Events for five consecutive years, UniverSoul Circus grants an interactive spectacle of acrobatic stunts, dance, and comedy set to popular urban sounds. With its swirling lights and pulsing beats, the circus's resemblance to a blowout concert tour is no accident: production designer Tom Marzullo has created internationally touring stage shows for Justin Bieber, Jay-Z, and Prince.
As hosts, a troupe of improv comics slip laughs in between the gasps and draw the crowd even closer into the action. Meanwhile, the production makes jaws drop farther with extreme motorsports, mind-bending acrobats, back-flipping canines, disco-dancing pachyderms, and free-flying aerial acts. These make up just a few of the globally sourced performers, others of whom hail from locales as diverse as Colombia, South Africa, Russia, and Trinidad and Tobago.
The State Theatre New Jersey was saved, as its website states, from "the ravages of time." Built in 1921 as a vaudeville and silent-film palace, the venue fell on hard times in the 1970s. In 2003, however, a $3 million renovation restored the State Theatre New Jersey to much of its original glory, as crews painstakingly rehabbed the ornamental plaster, terracotta exterior, and actor holding cells. Inside the theater, a stunning chandelier sparkles more brightly than ever below the venue's signature dome.

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 and Orlando Flying Trapeze gives you 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 and Orlando Flying Trapeze'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 you 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.
