Experience TORUK-The First Flight June 15-19 & a Giveaway


When my oldest graduated from high school and went off to college, I quickly realized just how much I had not done with him or my younger babies.  I realized that we had missed out on many opportunities to show our kids the world of arts.  Of course we did lots of things like vacationing at the beach, traveling to the mountains, going to lots of sporting events, and many kid friendly events like Chuck E Cheese and more.  Unfortunately, taking time to let them experience all the different types of art was something we missed.  In an effort to expose my children to everything I could, we started going to the art museums, botanical gardens, symphonies, and theaters.  One of our favorites, hands down, would have to be the Cirque du Soleil shows.  They are absolutely stunning and something that everyone, kids included, should experience!  No two shows are alike.

TORUK – The First Flight, inspired by James Cameron’s AVATAR, a live experience by Cirque du Soleil®, envisions a world beyond imagination set thousands of years before the events depicted in the film. The word Toruk, in the Na’vi language, refers to the great leonopteryx, the mighty red and orange predator that rules the Pandoran sky. Central in Na’vi lore and culture, this fascinating creature is crucial to the Na’vi clans’ sense of destiny and interconnectedness – and is about to be ridden for the very first time by a Na’vi.

TORUK – The First Flight is Cirque du Soleil’s 37th production since 1984. The company has brought wonder and delight to more than 155 million spectators in more than 300 cities on six continents. Cirque du Soleil has close to 4,000 employees, including 1,300 performing artists from close to 50 different countries.

    These photos are so beautiful. You are so right about the importance of exposing kids to the arts early one. I take my boys to shows all the time and they love the experiences they have.

    One thing I have to say–my Mom definitely exposed me to the arts from a very young age. I still love the Metropolitan Museum and if I could afford it-I’d still be going to on and off Broadway productions. However–Cirque de Soleil was not around back when I was young-and I have never managed to see it as an adult–it is on my bucket list for sure.

    Based on your photos, this looks like a must-see production! Everything Cirque du Soleil does is imaginative and larger than life and I’m proud to say the founder and mastermind is from Canada. I adored the movie Avatar and this must be so exciting and captivating to see in person. I know it will be touring, so I will make sure to see it during its Toronto run. Thanks for sharing this!

    That Cirque du Soleil show looks phenomenal. I was looking at the photos of the set and the costumes, and they are breathtaking. I’d love to see that one.🙂
