At Cirque du Soleil La Nouba, new acts bring fresh twist

If you haven’t been to La Nouba, the Cirque du Soleil show at Disney Springs, lately, you’ve been missing out on lots of new action. As of the beginning of this year, the show is 30 percent new content, including two dynamic opening acts. What could be more high energy than opening with break dancing?

As you can see, La Nouba’s new acts are all a great fit for the venerable show. If the videos whet your appetite to see it, check out show dates and ticket prices on the official website.
