SALTIMBANCO (Cirque du Soleil)

For my birthday we traveled to Des Moines to the the Wells Fargo Arena to watch Cirque du Soleil's oldest touring production, SALTIMBANCO.

Super excited to see the show,

The show starts off with a curtain covering the entire show floor.

The Chinese pole act was pretty amazing.

The bungee trapeze act looked liked it would be fun to participate in.

How about jumping from a Russian swing onto a balance beam.

3 person contortion.

It was a great show.  Good old school Cirque du Soleil.
