Big Apple Circus: Dance On!
W 62nd St (between Amsterdam and Columbus Aves)
Subway: A, C, B, D, 1 to 59th St–Columbus Circle; 1 to 66th St–Lincoln Ctr
This season, the Big Apple Circus sets its sights on moving and grooving in a show all about dance. Tots will find a chorus line of 12 white mini-horses, acrobats from Africa who perform to worldbeat music, giggle-inducing comic the “Man who Dances” (a.k.a. Mark Gindick) and more. Other acts include contortionists, an acrobatic ensemble on monocycles and, of course, Grandma the Clown. Pint-size circusgoers will adore the intimacy of the ring: No seat is more than 50 feet from the action, meaning nobody under this big top needs binoculars. All ages.
Sundays 12:30pm, 4:30pm , Wednesdays 2pm, 6:30pm , Thursdays 12:30pm, 4:30pm , Fridays 11am, 6:30pm , Saturdays 12:30pm, 4:30pm Through Jan 9 2011.
