The UniverSoul Circus reinvents the big top

For 14 years the UniverSoul Circus has infused typical three-ring fun with urban flavor that even has the high-flying acrobats leanin’ and rockin’ with it. Christened the “Hip-Hop Big Top,” the only African-American owned and operated circus has proven to spectacle and extravaganza authorities that everything is better with a little soul, salsa, jazz, and gospel sprinkled on top.

Don’t get it twisted -- this single-ring circus will give you the usual animal antics, contortionists, and clown theatrics you crave, but the difference is that most of the performers are people of color with nationalities spanning the globe. This multicultural meld results in rhythms from Caribbean to Latin and back to urban American, and performance skills that simply have to be seen to be believed. You’ll have your chance to ooh and aah for yourself from today through November 18, with morning, afternoon, and evening shows at Dolphin Stadium. Today’s showtimes are 10:30 a.m. and 7:30 p.m.
Nov. 15-18, 2007
