Alegria which means joy and jubilation in Spanish is a wonderful mix of dance, acrobatics, drama and live music.  Cirque du Soleil which means,  “Circus of the Sun” is a Canadian entertainment company which is based in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.  The Black Professionals News took a behind the scenes look at the show before taking in a performance that kept us on the edge of our seats.

The Black Professionals News interviewed the Assistant Art Director of Cirque du Soleil’s Alegria, Sheryl-Lynne Valensky at the Boardwalk Hall seaside entertainment center in Atlantic City.  See the interview and excerpts from the show.
