Making The Grade As An Entertainer

I've been playing in a classic rock band for the better part of eight years. There have been years when we have had a show every weekend and years when we don't perform much. For entertainers, knowing how to get booked to entertain is half the battle. Continually adding to your network of contacts is just as important as having an impressive repertoire or stage presence. Having a good booking agent will usually cost you a slice of the financial pie, but is often worth the price. This blog is all about how to further your success as an entertainer.

3 Reasons to Take Your Kids to a Holiday-Themed Circus Show

by Nina Howell

There are not as many circuses shows in the United States as there used to be, but taking your children to the circus should still be an important rite of passage. The circus is a place of wonderment and amazement for many children and is an experience you should provide for your child. Learn about three reasons why to take your kids to a holiday-themed circus show here.

Reason #1: Get to See a Live Show

So much of the entertainment that kids consume is on a screen. Kids listen to music, watch people dance, and watch shows all through their television or tablet screen. Going to the circus will provide your child with the unique opportunity to see people performing live.

Your child will see that there are real people putting on a show for them, and they will get to experience a show that is unique, as no live show is going to be exactly like the one before it.

Reason #2: Get to See Unique Animals

When you take your child to the circus, your child will have to see unique animals moving around and doing amazing feats that your child may not see anywhere else. Especially if you don't live near a major zoo, going to the circus may be one of your child's only chances to see unique animals up close and in person.

All the remaining circus in the United States are dedicated to providing their animals with the best of care, so you can take comfort that you are allowing your child to see unique animals, like elephants, that are being well taken care of.

Seeing these unique animals in person will also help open up conversations with your children about efforts around the world to save the unique animals. When your child has seen these animals up close and personal, helping to save them becomes more real.

Reason #3: Get to See People Doing Amazing Things

The circus is not just about the animals. At the circus, your child will get to see people do amazing feats right in front of them. Your child will get to see what people can do with their bodies when they train and practice. Your child will get to see people walk on thin ropes and fly through the air with trapezes. They may even get to see a magic trick or two.

If there is a holiday-themed circus show in your area this year, be sure to take your child. You will get to share the experience of seeing a live show full of extraordinary humans and animals. Going to the circus can ignite your child's imagination.
