    Barnum and Bailey Circus Extreme

    Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey is bringing the Circus Xtreme to Orlando on January 8 to 11, 2015 at the Amway Center. They promise it to be an extraordinary event that will entertain the entire family. The show features circus artists and exotic animals, and the organizations promise the event to be enjoyed by children of all ages.

Husband and wife team, Alex and Irina Emelin, is set to unveil never-before-seen acts that combine comedy, magic, animals, and athleticism. They have spent years training poodles, which they have incorporated into their act.

    The Art on Trampoline troupe returns for their second tour with Circus Xtreme. The members are champion athletes from various universities in Ukraine. They are experts with gymnastics, trampoline, and the fast track. The founder of the troupe thought of the act that is composed of two trampolines, 15 foot tower, and well-trained acrobats. They will be part of the finale of Circus Xtreme that features free runners and BMX riders. The Art on Trampoline troupe will launch, flip and propel up in the air.

    Of course, a circus is incomplete without clowns. Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey brings the best clowns to Orlando. Taylor Albin, also known as the Boss Clown, is a product of the company’s Clown College auditions. He says that he is happy to see families together and enjoying the show.

    Another extreme act that will be coming to Orlando is the Danguir Troupe Highwire act. Troupe Leader Mustafa Danguir is a holder of various high wire world records.

    The Ringmaster of Circus Xtreme is David Shipman. He is in charge of introducing the acts of the show. He was always involved in theater because of his passion for performance. It is only natural that he wants to be part of The Greatest Show on Earth.
