  • Your Host - Miss Audrey Michelle

    Audrey Michelle Alvarado attended her first circus when she was four years old and from then on, she has been a part of the Circus World! Her parents were hand balancers and she began performing with them when she was six years old. Touring with her family, she has performed various circus acts, training animals, performing with elephants and becoming an aerialist. At 14, she returned to her hometown of El Paso, TX to complete her education. Eight years later, she married Israel Alvarado, a former acrobat with the famous Golden Aztecs, and rejoined the circus world. They now travel together performing while raising their three children. One of the very few female Ringmasters in the Circus World, she considers it an honor to lead you through our Magical Circus Extravaganza!
