CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (CBS19 NEWS) -- A traveling circus has come to Charlottesville and is inviting families to see the spectacular events it has planned.

Do Portugal International Circus travels to different countries around the world. The circus has put on shows for almost 30 years now, but this is the first time it has come to Charlottesville.

The show features dangerous acts, aerial artists, magicians, jugglers, and more.

"They've been training for years and years to be able to do this," said Susan Vance, the Circus Choreographer. "And they still train. We have rehearsals in the morning, and then we have our show at nighttime. Everything is always ongoing, and we're always improving and keeping up with acts so everyone can always see something different."

The show will be running until March 20. Tickets can be purchased in advance online or at the circus one hour before the show.
