Have you experienced  a Cirque du Soleil show?  It is an experience like no other. It is a visual feast and provides a multi sensory experience that is one of a kind.  When I read that one of the original creators of Cirque du Soleil had created Cavalia, a show about the relationship between humans and horses, I just knew I had to experience it  for myself.

Last week I was able to head up to Burbank with my daughter and sisters  to experience Cavalia. The show is set up under a big tent next to Downtown Burbank and very easy to get to.  My five year old daughter almost couldn’t contain herself  with excitement when she spotted the big tent. We were in for quite a treat.

Cavalia features many of the same things that I love about Cirque shows.  The live music was mesmerizing. The acrobatics were incredible.  My daughter was absolutely in love with the aerialists. She called them ballet dancers in the sky. The show features dozens of beautiful horses and talented performers. I was glued to my seat the entire time and so was my  five year old. 

I can’t rave enought about Cavalia. If you are looking for something special to do for Valentine’s Day, look no further. Cavalia is also a perfect special treat for the entire family. If your kiddos can sit through an entire movie at the theater, he or she will be able to enjoy the show. My suggestion  if you are taking little ones is to try to catch an afternoon show on the weekends.

The show runs until February 15th. Ticekts start at $39 with special pricing for the kiddos. For additional info head here.

I was not compensated for this post. I was given complementary tickets  to experience the show.
