Revellers at the ball were treated to the crazy weird world of the Jelly Jazz Circus. Incandescence artists animated the tent with fabulous costumed performers dancing across the bar, dynamic  fire performance and interactive aerial artists hanging around above the dance floor.

Fantastic tunes were played by the Jelly Jazz DJs who created a brilliant dance atmosphere throughout the night. This was definitely my favourite Masked Ball to date.

Running away with the Circus

Guest blog by Fleur Davison, Incandescence Circus Company’s resident choreographer.

circus show

My journey with Incandescence Circus Production Company began in 2003, when I was invited to perform in an exciting new show called ‘Cirque Elemental’ for The Festival of Eid in Qatar as a classical ballet dancer.

This was Qatar’s first experience of booking a large-scale circus production and the trip was a huge adventure!

I immediately loved the eclectic mix of styles that made up ‘Cirque Elemental’ and was wowed by the incredible skill and energy of the circus performers.

Water themed entertainment

I was honoured to be performing with them and took to the company like a duck to water. I soon became their resident dance choreographer and later part of the Show Creation Team.

Cirque cabaret

I trained to be a dancer from a very young age and followed a privileged path at many well renowned schools, including Elmhurst Ballet School and London Studio Centre

As I grew, so did my passion for all kinds of different styles of dance, from ballet to jazz, tap to contemporary dance and later on commercial street dance, ballroom and tango.

Working with Incandescence has enabled me to fulfil my potential in all aspects of dance and has led me to learn new exciting skills such as Thai Chi Sword and Fan.

On each job with Incandescence Circus Company, I have the opportunity to really explore different forms and themes and to bring so many characters to life.  I love the challenge of working with a new prop and rarely choreograph without one!

There are no limits working with a circus company, if you need a dancer to fly then she can fly.  If you need a wall of fire instead of feathers then there will be a wall of fire.  Mixing circus and dance is like opening doors of limitless opportunity.

‘Running away with the Circus’ has taught me that anything in life is possible!
