When it comes to the family business, Harry Dubsky doesn’t clown around — despite coming from a long line of circus entertainers.
“I was born into it,” he says. “When kids would want to run away with the circus, I would want to run away from the circus. That’s just a joke, really. I’m seven generations [of circus performers] on my father’s side, five on my mother’s.”
Growing up, Dubsky, 48, spent his time taking care of the family pets, which were the leopards and panthers his parents trained.
Today, Dubsky works as managing director for Circus America, INC., a company that promotes the Piccadilly Circus show. This fall, Circus America premiered Circus Fusion, which combines the classic look and feel of the American circus found in Piccadilly with the European performance-based styles made popular by Cirque du Soleil. The show features a range of stunts from acrobats launched from a catapult to tricks by the Ukraine Olympic High Bar Team and boasts entertainment from clowns to ballerinas.
Animals such as elephants and camels are also a part of the show. Circus goers who arrive early are welcome to attend a petting zoo with elephants, camels and ponies.
