The Salt Spring Arts Academy presents Under The Big Top, a one act ballet show: choreographed, written and directed by Lisa Hall. The storyline revolves around a girl who visits the circus when it comes to her village and is enchanted by all the performers: sword swallowers, snake charmers and of course LIONS AND BEARS!
