    The Cirque du Soleil Saltimbanco Tour is coming to an arena near you. Of course you know Cirque du Soleil, right? Well, for those of you who don't know, it is a touring company that combines various forms of circus performance from around the world. They mainly use acrobatic acts, as well as live music and creative costumes. Saltimbanco is the oldest show from the Cirque du Soleil arsenal of shows, but the original was discontinued in 2006 after 14 years of production. Last year, they decided to produce a new version of the old program.  Saltimbanco means "to jump on a bench" literally, but it refers more to acrobatic kinds of moves, jumping up onto a stage and that kind of thing. Cirque du Soleilm really is a family favorite, at any time of year. Kids and adults are always amazed at what these acrobats can do. You really shouldn't miss it when it comes to a venue near you.
