Today we had 4.5 and 6 years old with three children on show. Everyone looked not stopped, laughed surprised! I liked everything and everything, starting with my uncle, who played at the circus cheerful and fervent and to the last number! Thanks for the gift of emotions! We sat on the 7th row of 1, 2 and 3 seats, just class, but from other places I think it is perfectly clear and in some cases the artists involved the most distant ranks.

In the circus since childhood was not 15-20 years old, 16.06 was with the child. I got a terrific experience. Artists fellows, created incredible, simply impossible, beautiful design, costumes, everything is sparkling. I will look forward to the next show with impatience. At the exit she heard the womans opinion that she was upset by the circus, that this is for toddlers. Strongly disagree with this, the show seriously enough, no nonsense. But the clowns made to laugh the whole hall, not only children, very cool guys.
