Cirque Du Soleil Has Free Online Shows Every Week & It's Perfect If You Miss The Circus

Under the big tent but in your living room.

Strap on your red clown nose, as the circus is in town. Many of us look forward to the arrival of the big top every year in Canada. But now you no longer need to wait to enjoy the magic. Cirque Du Soleil has new free weekly shows online that you can enjoy from your living room.

The world-famous Canadian group recently launched CirqueConnect, an online site loaded with free goodies. Now, we know there will be new content to binge every single Friday. 

It's perfect if you are a huge cirque fan and already binged your way through their website.

Cirque Du Soleil told Narcity in an email that there will be new content Fridays at 3 p.m. EST. You'll get to see aerialists soaring above the stage and acrobatics that seem to defy gravity.

The weekly special episodes will be an hour of exclusive footage from their most amazing shows like Amaluna or VOLTA.

In them, the Canadian artists will leave you breathless as they perform tricks you wouldn't think are humanly possible.

For those of you who haven't been able to afford tickets to see this circus group live, this is an opportunity you won't want to miss. You'll get to see all the best bits while staying cozy on your sofa.

Much like all the other companies offering virtual experiences, now you can enjoy a front-row seat at the circus.

All the videos will be available on their website, and there is a handful of them to watch right now.

So forget your plans, grab a snack and watch them with your BFF using an online streaming service.

Plus, on Thursdays, you'll feel like you scored a VIP pass. You'll find new stuff each week that will let you feel like you got to go behind the stage and meet everyone.

For those of you dream about running away and joining the circus, you'll want to check out their how-to video on juggling to get you started. There are all sorts of epic original web episodes sure to make you smile too.

For those of you who have already tried the virtual reality experience, we have good news.

We got the inside scoop that you can expect a new 360 VR show in the next few weeks that brings your right on the stage without leaving the living room.
