Coaching and Acrobatic Performance Director,  Boris VerkhovskyCoaching and Acrobatic Performance Director, Boris VerkhovskyCirque du Soleil's show "KOOZA" is coming to Connecticut. The show tells the story of a melancholy loner in search of his place in the world. Both he and the audience are taken on a journey through strength, fragility, laughter, turmoil, and harmony.

Montreal-based Cirque du Soleil has been wowing audiences world-wide with their combinations of acrobatics, dance, music, and incredible stagecraft. The best artists are selected for each show, and are worked with by top-notch coaches, who help shape the terrific acts that amaze and astound their audiences wherever they perform.

Every Cirque performance looks effortless...perfectly sculpted bodies bending and balancing, swinging and soaring through the air with the grace and beauty each of us secretly envies, and wishes we too could possess.

Of course, it's not that easy, and we know that.

And talking with Boris Verkhovsky, Cirque's Acrobatic Performance and Coaching Director, helps give a good idea of the many elements, processes, and just what it take to be a part of a show like KOOZA, and Cirque du Soleil.
