Vegas Golden Knights perform for Cirque du Soleil? From Stanley Cup Playoffs to #CirqueWay For A Day

August 23, 2019


I’m ready to do it the CirqueWay. I’m ready to do it the CirqueWay. We had fun teaching the
Golden Knights how to do some circus
stuff, a little bit. Yeah, it was awesome. We got to play
around with the whole entire team and show them all the different
apparatuses and skills that you can learn here
at Cirque du Soleil and what we have trained on our entire
careers to get where we are today. I think all the activities that
we chose are ones that can be, you know, easily picked up. And from there, they’ve just
kind of build on them. If they feel confident, they can go
to the next level of that skill. So we had guys standing
on each other’s shoulders and doing stacking and
things of that nature. We also did a little bit of Russian
bar, which does a lot of balancing and teamwork and
that sort of thing. We helped the players with
hand-to-hand and pyramid. Yeah, we helped the Knights work on a lot
of partner balance and partner acrobatics. We were able to show them how a
lot of teamwork is incorporated in a lot of the things
that we do here at Cirque. And they were fantastic, just naturally
strong and able to do pretty much anything. The stuff they do is pretty crazy
and takes a lot of practice to do. Yeah, I did the juggle
part but it’s not easy. Obviously, when you look
at it, it looks simple but when you start doing it, you
can’t do it. It’s a lot of practice. I didn’t think we were
going to do that. I thought it was kind of
just a little workout and, you know, see them do it. And to be able to participate,
it was pretty neat. It’s been great. The guys have really
taken what we’ve offered them. They’ve showed some guts
to get everything done. It’s easy to work with
professional athletes. They know how to move
their bodies, you know? And so, they took
instruction real well. They had a good time.
And it was easy to see. #CirqueWay
