You’re in for a treat! It’s Showtime at Your Library with Katie and Kaci from Imagine Circus. They’ll share what it’s like behind the scenes as a circus performer, as well as the fun, sweat, and tears that goes into creating performances. This show will inspire you to move, be creative, eat healthy, and realize that all the world’s a stage! At the end of the show, get a chance to ask Katie and Kaci questions!
Imagine Circus’s dynamic acro duo, Katie and Kaci, are movement enthusiasts, healthy eaters, creativity cultivators, self-published authors, and reading advocates! Years ago they were inspired to create every letter of the alphabet with their bodies–an amazing feat of strength, skill, and patience– and published their first book, ACRO: An Alphabet Art Book. Featuring colorful letters and high resolution images of the “acro alphabet,” their book includes an uplifting poem about hard work and cooperation.
Audience members participate in a light hearted group stretch and other fun activities. Learn about life as an acrobat, the need for healthy eating, the value of hard work and the importance of practice, practice, practice!
Home to numerous local and national eateries, offices and athletic facilities, MacGregor Village is hosting a party to showcase their brand new renovations! This new and improved Cary Shopping center now features covered seating areas, a new outdoor fountain, bike racks and new LED lighting including in the parking lot.
