Big Apple Circus Presents "Dance On!"
This past weekend, Aiden and I were invited to attend the opening weekend of The Big Apple Circus' Dance On! show located at Cunningham Park in Fresh Meadows Queens, NY, which will run from now through June 5th.
Taking the trip out to Queens, NY was totally worth it because Aiden and I had a fabulous time. Since it takes place under the Big Top tent, no seat is located more than 50 feet from the ring and the atmosphere is intimate and interactive.
The troupe of monocyclists and lasso twirlers were so much fun, the contortionists and athletes defied the laws of gravity, and the miniature horses were an added treat! Nice!
I really liked that many of the performers included audience members in their acts. It was quite lovely as audience members danced, sang, and flew in the air. Literally. Both the kids and grown-ups enjoyed it, which made the energy pretty freakin' amazing.
The show is only 2-hours long, which includes intermission. This is perfect for the toddler and/or preschooler who doesn't like to sit still for long periods of time. But believe me, with all the action going on under the tent, no one will actually want to sit still. And right outside of the Big Top tent is a field where the kids can run freely and make wishes with dandelions.
The Big Apple Circus will take place under the Big Top tent from now until June 5th and they have generously extended a discount to Mommy Delicious readers. You can enjoy $15.00 off each ticket to Dance On!
