I had a chance to talk to Fanny Kerwich, the found and Creative Director of Lone Star Circus recently. She was really awesome–such a lively and positive person! We talked about her history in the circus and how she founded Lone Star Circus and the Lone Star Circus School, both non-profit organizations. We also talked about Lone Star Circus’ new holiday show Cirque Banquiste which will be playing at the Rosewood Center for Arts from December 29th through January 1st. The show features international circus super stars that come to Dallas during the holidays just to perform in this show. My family can’t wait to see it! Ticket prices for Cirque Banquiste range from $20 – $45 and you can get a 10% discount at www.lonestarcircus.org by using the discount code LSC!
I was really impressed to hear that Fanny started training on the trapeze at age 4 and then started performing professionally in her family’s circus when she was just 6 years old!
She ended up starting Lone Star Circus because she met her then future husband when she was touring with a show in Dallas. Really neat love story!
