3 Reasons Why UniverSoul Circus Is Better Than Ever

3 Reasons Why UniverSoul Circus Is Better Than Ever

I remember my mom and aunts taking me to to circus religiously every single year. Whenever the circus was in town, we were there. I always had such a good time, I kinda knew that I would absolutely continue this tradition with my own children.

One circus that has always stood out as my favorite was the UniverSoul Circus. We were invited to attend the opening seeking of the show and it just reminded me why it is my favorite for several reasons:

Intimacy: Other circuses tend to be super out of reach. I would go to large stadiums and although it was fun, I didn’t get the feeling that I was actually a part of the show. With the Universoul Circus I always feel like I’m a part of the show. The show takes place in a tent where every seat is a great seat. The clowns (who are super cool—good looking—clowns that actually have some SERIOUS dance moves and swag) go all the way up to the farthest seats to engage with the crowd.

Crowd Involvement: Remember that one time I was randomly selected to be a part of the Universoul Circus show? That didn’t happen this time but I love the audience involvement. They pick random people from the crowd to become a part of the show/dance in the soul train line/or even do a really cool kids dance contest.


Bigger and Badder: I have seen this show SO many times, but this was was remarkably different! They had some new acts which included some incredible contortionists that made me yelp on more than one occasion. The kids were simultaneously thoroughly entertained and terrified all at the same time. It was great. 🙂 There was also a motorcycle segment where the motorists literally flew in the air, flipping themselves, letting go of the bikes—I think I might have been screaming just as loud as the kids!

If you are in the area, run to walk to see this show! They have taken the show up a level and you will not be disappointed!

My son has been but my daughter has never been to a circus. I want to take her before they get rid of all of them

I haven't been to a circus in DECADES. We have a cool people only one here but it's so hot and crowded, that I let my in-laws take the kids last summer. This looks fun!

OK, I am well overdue to go to the circus, as I went all the time as I kid, too. But sadly I am not recalling the last time I went now. Might be time to see if I can take my family to one soon. Looks like you all had a wonderful time here and glad you got to experience this circus once again :)

There is so much controversy surround circus' these days that I'm not sure they even come to Hartford, CT anymore! My parents definitely took me a few times when I was a kid and, I took the boys once and they were totally underwhelmed. It was the weirdest thing! They were all "tigers? meh" so we never went back. This however, looks like a great family time, even in that cold weather!
