The RUSSIA EXPO hosted the Art of Circus procession timed to coincide with the International Circus Day. More than two hundred acrobats, jugglers, mimes, clowns, gymnasts and other artists took part in it. In addition, it was joined by children's circus studios and specialized schools - among the participants of the procession were children from seven years old.

"On April 12, a new phase started at the RUSSIA EXPO - thanks to the President, the work has been extended until July 8. The new phase will be devoted to the future of Russia, its prospects and path of development. Our cultural and educational program is also being updated. Now there will be more events at the RUSSIA EXPO that you can not only watch, but also take part in - these are bright flash mobs, large-scale processions," said Anastasia Zvyagina, Deputy Director General of the RUSSIA EXPO.

Today's procession is part of the updated program of the RUSSIA EXPO. "Today we are holding a circus procession timed to coincide with the International Circus Day. It is important for us that pupils of children's circus schools from different regions take part in it. We would like to thank the Ministry of Culture, Rosgoscirc, the Circus and Variety Art School, circus studios and schools, as well as all the guests who joined us today for their help in organizing this procession," said Anastasia Zvyagina.

The Art of Circus procession opened with a show of aerial gymnasts and acrobats on flexible poles by the Bastrigin Brothers, who have over a thousand performances under their belt. "A record number of circus artists working in all genres are represented here - this is the key to a great performance. There are wonderful people around, a lot of smiles, and I hope that the procession will help to keep this mood" said the co-founder of the "Bastrigin Brothers" air show Vitaly Bastrigin.
