Save The Circus

https://www.cirquelavie.net/ 

Hello! First of all thank you for taking the time and interest to read this. 

Sadly due to the current pandemic a lot of gyms and studios have had to close there doors.  A lot of them permanently. Which is upsetting for a lot of people who have maybe found a second home or safe place to go to, somewhere they felt comfortable.  Not to mention the hardships put on the owners and workers who are now out of jobs.  With all this being said we are trying very hard to keep our doors open. We are Cirque La Vie, a circus studio, and a another home for a lot of us. Cirque La Vie's focus is to make everyone who walks through the doors feel at home, coach and to help them grow in the area they wish to succeed in, but most of all this is the place where performers are born.  The Cirque offers many classes such as flexibility, aerials, acrobatics, hand stands, and of course there are kids classes. Also, there is a very special circus class offered to Circus freak members to learn how to become better performers.

Cirque La Vie isn't just a circus company and club for our members it is the home of our performers, where we are also students, coaches, and train everyday as a family. You might have seen us perform at Dickens on the Strand ( Galveston ), Texas Renaissance After Dark, Steampunk November ( Venus, TX ),  A-kon (Dallas), The Lawn ( Memorial City ), Tall Ships ( Kemah ), Tomball German Festival, and this is just to name a few major events that we do. We also have done many hotel, church, convention, you name it events!  Not to mention Cirque La Vie does a lot of charity events, out reach programs, free performances, school workshops, however we can help contribute and bring the world of circus to people who need it.

As many of you may or may not know Cirque Du Soleil has filed for Bankruptcy, Broadway will not re-open until 2021, which has put hundreds of our fellow artists and performers out of work along with many other small circus troops. Unfortunately this might become Cirque La Vie's reality very soon. We are trying everything in our power to keep moving forward. Trying to keep the circus alive here in Texas. We have very loyal students that have stuck by us through it all! But we have had every event we were supposed to perform at canceled due to the current pandemic and trying to keep everyone safe, which has put us in a financial bind sadly.  Cirque La Vie has been open since 2013 was founded by a very passionate performer known as Coach Reiyie or Master Reiyie (if he is in ringmaster mode) to create a place where he can help other performers become better at there craft or to help someone find there passion but of course the main reason was to perform and put on shows to make everyone smile and forget the stress of the world. He has over 13 years of experience to give to his students and performers, and by his side is Coach Kay with 6 years experience, someone who can make anyone smile on a daily.   This amazing art form has been slowly dying out for years, and due to this pandemic it might happen sooner than we all think. Circus is a combination of so many wonderful things, it takes everything from theater, dance, gymnastics, production, contortion, strength, passion, and so much more just to create a moment of awe, to push the human body to amazing limits, to create magic just to get the wide eyes and smiles from those watching. Think of how far back the history of circus began and where we are now.  I can keep giving you the facts, and the reasons why we as a company, a family need to keep our doors open but I would end up with a book by the time I'm finished because that is how passionate I am about keeping this place alive. Please help Cirque La Vie keep our doors open, keep performing arts, a safe place and home for a lot of us, a place to grow and learn, but most of all please help us keep the circus alive!
