I received complimentary tickets from UniverSoul Circus in exchange for review. All thoughts are my own.
UniverSoul Circus® is described as “The best circus ever!”. I must say, I have been to several circuses and have only thoroughly enjoyed one, UniverSoul. The UniverSoul Circus show is the most culturally diverse circus you will ever see, and for my family, that is exactly what I want to expose them to–representation of many people.
About 15 years ago my aunt introduced my sister and I to the UniverSoul Circus. It was at the Indiana State Fairground and I remember feeling the electricity and everyone’s excitement for the show before we even entered the Big Top. The same feeling was felt as my family of four entered the Big Top this past week in Columbus. Sounds of soulful music filled our ears as we found our seats. It did not take long for my three year old (the dancer of the family) and I to start clapping and dancing to the wide range of music being played. Everything from classic soul to current hits accompanied the voice of an incredible ring master and the two and a half hours of a show.
Acts included representation of people from all over the world, from the U.S. to Ethiopia to China and many countries in between. The show was completely unpredictable which kept us, especially our children, on the edge of our seats waiting for more. On some occasions, setup for the next act took a little longer than expected, but entertainment outside the ring was always present, which allowed circus goers a chance to interact with Fresh The Clowns, who added a comical element to the show.
People magically changing into several different outfits right in front of us, motorcyclists flying through the air, almost touching the top of the tent, to an incredible act that seemingly made tigers appear out of thin air made our first family experience at a UniverSoul Circus fun-filled, entertaining and magical. People of every skin tone and ethnicity were in attendance and participated, making this the best circus ever.
