OCTOBER 17, 2014 – JANUARY 11, 2015

For its 37th Season, Big Apple Circus soars on wings of artifice and illusion, to a
dreamscape domain where no one sits more than 50 feet from the ring, and nothing is
impossible! Big Apple Circus presents the New York Premiere of METAMORPHOSIS
under the Big Top at Lincoln Center on Friday, October 17th, 2014.

Appearing before your very eyes: The thrilling flyers of the trapeze, swooping and
swirling through circus skies! The razzle-dazzle of the rolla-bolla, an act that teeters right
on the edge of equilibrium! The dynamo of the diabolo, the whirling double–tops of the
Big Top! An aerial space-age acrobatic adventure — an ascent to amazement! The risky
rhythms of the Risley team, twisting and turning, topsy-turvy! The cadenzas of camels and
horses, and the exuberance of playful pooches, out to dazzle with delight! The cunning
conjurors of the quick-change act, defying belief and inspiring awe! The incredible
flexible limbs of the contortionist in an act that will literally bend your imagination! And
Francesco the Clown, captivating the crowd with his musical merriment and gentle humor.
Under the direction of maestro Rob Slowik, the renowned Big Apple Circus Band
provides as always the live and glorious tunes of the sawdust spectacular. And finally, our
irrepressible, magnificent Ringmaster, the illustrious and incomparable John Kennedy
Kane will summon the spirits of the circus universe to immerse you in the wonder, the joy
and the astounding magic of METAMORPHOSIS!

✯ From the US, John Kennedy Kane makes his thrilling three-peat here
under the Big Top, to take you on a shimmering, chimerical adventure!
✯ From Russia, Vladimir and Olga Smirnov challenge you to keep up as
they change from one outrageously spectacular costume to another in
just the blink of an eye!
✯ From the US, Jenny Vidbel guides her beloved animal friends —
ponies, puppies and more — through astonishing tricks that’ll have the
audience cheering!
✯ From Russia, the Aniskin Troupe transports the audience to new
heights, showcasing some of the best twists and turns of the century on
their trampoline and flying trapeze!
✯ From the US, the Anastasini Family show off their slick skills with
diabolo (“Chinese yoyos”), Risley (foot juggling — each other!), and an
aerial space act that will leave you bedazzled and beguiled!
✯ From France, Francesco the Clown brings joy and laughter to children
and adults alike as he transforms reality into dreams!
✯ From the US and Mongolia, Tatevik Seyranyan and Odbayasakh

breath-taking balancing act!

My First Driving Memories as a Teen #TeenDrive365

by Kerri on September 17, 2014

I am a member of the Stiletto Media Blogger Network. This is a sponsored post written for #TeenDrive365 and the Toyota Teen Driver Safety Clinic. However, all thoughts and opinions expressed herein are my own. For more information on the Toyota Teen Driver Safety Clinic, please visit


Do you remember your first time driving?  I have to say I was pretty excited at the time.  I can remember getting up early in the summer to take Driver’s Ed at my high school.  The funny thing is, I took driver’s ed at school at a time when my family did not own a car.  So,  driver’s ed was my only time to get behind the wheel.  It takes a great person to want to teach a car full of girls how to drive.  Now that I am a teacher, I totally respect how challenging it must have been to teach those in the real world where accidents can happen.  Oh, the stress!

I can hear my instructor now, “Keep your hands on the wheel and your eyes on the road.”  The first time I drove, I barely touched the gas pedal.  “Gas the car, gas the car!” he kept saying with a great deal of patience.



Back in the day it was hands at the 10 and two position.  I recently learned at the New York International Car Show from Toyota that we are supposed to keep our hands in the 9 and 3 position.  It is a much safer choice.  It is this reason that I think safety clinics are super important.  The rules change and sometimes we aren’t even aware.  But, now is a great time to make our teens aware.

When I tried the Teen Drive 365 virtual simulator, it was a real eye opener for how many distractions there can be when driving.  I found this tool to be a great way to help teens understand the dangers on the road.
