A Youth Show of Design, Daring & Dance
Cirque d’Sopris, an annual youth show of design, daring & dance took place on Saturday, January 31st and Sunday, February 1st, 2015. This year’s theme was the Chinese Zodiac. The show features youth fashion creations, dancing, acrobatic feats, and more! A fashion design class is held prior to the show, look for this class in the fall. We are always blown away by the creativity and talent of these young folks and ask ourselves, did they really make these clothes?!? And the answer is YES! They did, they make them all. Now if only they made clothes for big kids too : )
