Circus Smirkus readies for First Night Burlington, Vermont
- December 30, 2010
Vermont's largest New Year's Eve party is First Night Burlington.
Thursday, the youth performing group Circus Smirkus was busy rehearsing for its two shows Friday at Memorial Auditorium. Circus Smirkus has been a part of the substance-free celebration for more than 10 years and says it's one of their favorite gigs of the year. It lets the young people reconnect with their friends and sharpen their skills months after wrapping up their popular summer tour.
"All sorts of acrobatics, classic human pyramids, the energy and spirit that makes Ringling and Cirque du Soleil and Big Apple wonder-- how do you get that spirit? Well you get that spirit by dealing with youth. And we've got youth here who are going to share their passion and joy and love with the community here," said Troy Wunderle, the artistic director for Circus Smirkus.
"I love that the entire place gets packed. All the chairs are full, you can look up into every single corner and see people smiling and enjoying the show. And that's really why we perform is because of all the people who are enjoying it and forgetting about their problems for just a minute," said Greylin Nielsen, a Circus Smirkus performer.
First Night Burlington says it can't remember a warmer weather forecast for New Year's Eve than what's expected this year.
