The Russian American Kids Circus
Returns to MCCC's Kelsey Theatre Jan. 31


A circus like no other is coming to town. Step right up for the "Russian American Kids Circus," coming to MCCC's Kelsey Theatre. Young circus stars ages 6 through 18 will perform all manner of amazing tricks and routines as they juggle, ride unicycles and walk the tight rope and balance beam. Back by popular demand, this high-flying troupe will perform at Kelsey for two shows only on Saturday, Jan. 31 at 2 and 4 p.m. Kelsey Theatre is located on Mercer's West Windsor campus, 1200 Old Trenton Road.

Trained by veterans of the world famous Moscow Circus, the Russian American Kids Circus has performed to sold-out crowds on theatrical stages worldwide and presented workshops in performing art centers, colleges, theme parks, and other venues. The group began in 1994 when Alex Berenchtein, his wife Regina, and mother-in-law Olga Partigul opened a nonprofit academy, the New Way Circus Center, Inc., in Brooklyn, N.Y. Welcoming children of all ages, nationalities, languages, ethnic backgrounds, and races, the academy has given many children an opportunity to develop self-expression, discipline and teamwork through the artistry of circus performance skills.
