This is a great video about the Circus of Dreams, founded and run by our very own laurajane (who has been away from the boards for a while, busy with other things like having babies).
They started out on the east coast performing at the hotels in the area. Their fame has since spread and they now perform at events in different parts of the country:

Thanks Chirimoya, I am still around and pop in here quite regularly, but keep a,low profile these days. Thanks for sharing this video, it took a long time getting here, 5 years in fact but things are going well and i am really pleased with this video.

Thanks again

I think I saw Vanesa (Nadia's ballet teacher) at 00:16.

While I have never watched the whole show they are a staple at celebrations in PuntaCana. Great job LJ!

Hi yes Vanesa works with us and is amazing! I made those stilt costumes myself for the Christmas fair in Punta Cana, I also had a Christmas tree stilt walker which was a real hit.

Thanks again

Great video! I met Laurajane and her husband Antonio the other day. They've worked HARD to achieve what they have - something so unique for this island. Through their dedication, passion and enthusiasm they've given their team of performers (mostly ex street kids) a whole new outlook on life. Keep up the good work guys!
