Last night Cirque Sublime performed at the Starlight Children Foundation‘s 15th Annual Wishes and Dreams Fundraiser in the Allen Lambert Galleria of Brookfield Place. The Starlight Children’s Foundation celebrated receiving nearly $2 million in donations from Brookfield Place’s tenants and suppliers.
Opening the show and performing the Holiday Lighting Ceremony was Ariana Shaw (my silks coach!) as the Starlight Princess.
Les Vitaminés (Cbastien Tardif and Vincent Dubé) next did a funny and skillful clowning static trapeze act.
Amy Neumann, in her first professional performance as an aerial artist, wowed the crowd with her aerial silks skills.
Jean-Francois Martel was next on stage where the large man entered a very large Cyr Wheel.
Next up, Les Vitamines returned to the stage for their Balloon Ballet. (No video as my hands were full of kids instead of a camera).
And to conclude the acrobatics for the evening Duo Voltart (Damien Boudreau and Geneviere Cliche) do some astounding Hand to Hand (not my video as again, I was holding a kid instead of a camera).
Toronto is a great place for seeing Circus Arts! If you’re interested in trying it out recreationally, check out the Toronto School of Circus Arts.
You can have YouTube play all the above videos for you together using the playlist.
