Cirque du Soleil Brings VOLTA to Seattle - Wednesday, October 3, 2018!

Cirque du Soleil returns to Seattle this fall with their new show VOLTA!

On Wednesday October 3, 2018, Cirque will host a special benefit night for SANCA – with the proceeds of all tickets sold through a dedicated ticket link donated to SANCA.

VOLTA is a captivating voyage of discovery. It’s about finding yourself, and unveiling your personal powers. Inspired in part by the adventurous spirit that fuels the culture of street sports, the show weaves acrobatics in a visually striking world driven by a stirring melodic score. VOLTA is a story of transformation. It is about being true to oneself, fulfilling one’s true potential, and recognizing one’s own power to make it possible. Ultimate freedom comes with self-acceptance, and with the liberation of the judgement of others.

Kids in SANCA’s Hemiparesis Summer Camp use handstand blocks
to develop core strength and grip strength.

Your gifts of support will help us to continue to provide healthy, creative circus arts activities to our community. This funds efforts such as our annual Hemiparesis Summer Camp program. The camp is part of SANCA’s Every Body’s Circus program and is focused on working with youth who have partial paralysis on one side of their bodies. In the camp, they get to work and play with other kids who are facing the same challenges and experiences, and they learn they are not alone. They develop core strength, and greater flexibility and mobility, and become more confident in their bodies as they learn how to move in fun ways using circus arts. The Hemiparesis Camp is just one example of the ways funding from GiveBIG helps change the lives of youth through circus arts.

We would especially like to thank the SANCA Board of Directors for their inspiring $5,500 Challenge Match, and all our 86 community donors who rose to that challenge and far exceeded it in providing gifts of support for SANCA to bring circus to our community. Thank you!
