The Hippo Who Wanted to Fly

Share this event:

"The Hippo Who Wanted to Fly" is the charming story of a young Hippo who is determined to fly, despite the fact that she is wing-challenged. When her parents object to her fantasy, Hippo ventures forth from her pond to find anyone who can help her fulfill her dream. In an unfamiliar part of the jungle she meets a mentor named NEWT who introduces her to 'animals, who know animals, who know animals that know something about flying'. In the end, Hippo learns many lessons about herself, about 'spreading her wings' and really learning to fly.

'The Hippo Show' is a creation of the Amazing Grace CIRCUS! Youth Troupe from Nyack, NY, to celebrate their 10th Anniversary of bringing the lessons of CIRCUS to over 4,000 children a year. The show is directed by AGC! Artistic Directors, Carlo Pellegrini and Janet Hayes, with additional acrobatic choreography by Karen Gersch (Director, Acrobrats Inc., a physical arts company and founding member of Big Apple Circus) and aerial/dance choreography by Hilary Sweeney (Director, Westchester Circus Arts and owner of Lux Aerial Entertainment).

AGC! is a performing arts company of teenagers aged 13 - 18 trained in the circus arts. It is the oldest and only year-round circus arts organization in the NY and northern NJ areas and is dedicated to building C.I.R.C.U.S. into children and teens lives with:  Confidence.Imagination.Respect.Cooperation.Understanding.Success.
