The Ring Leader is a family-friendly show about a Ring Leader who is nearing retirement and a Newcomer who is finding her way in the circus inspired by The Greatest Showman. Join us at the circus for some fun and playful acts as our Ring Leader navigates the demands of being in charge and our Newcomer navigates finding her way under the big top. As the story progresses the Ring Leader sees the potential of the newcomer and chooses to groom and train her to take over so she can retire. Original choreography by the members of The Dance Eclectic tell a story through genres of dance ranging from classical ballet, to modern dance, to jazz, as well as saber twirling and wonderfully talented guest artists.
