Supporters of the Circus Arts Conservatory will gather on Jan. 27 to support the youth and education programs of the CAC at its 25th Anniversary Gala under the Ulla Searing Big Top at Nathan Benderson Park’s Regatta Island.
“The Gala support provides significant and critical funding for the CAC’s arts education, emphasizing collaboration and teamwork, creativity and imagination, critical thinking and problem-solving,” said Jennifer Mitchell, executive vice president for the CAC.
The event will feature hand balancers the Alexis Brothers, who wowed audiences in Sarasota during the Circus Sarasota 2022 show, and a duo straps act from Ukraine – Maryna Tkachenko and Anastasiia Kornieieva. The CAC has joined other members of the Global Alliance of Circus Schools in offering support and professional opportunities for Ukrainian artists in the wake of the country’s war with Russia. …. link to full length article at the Sarasota Herald Tribune.
