Subject: Cirque du Soleil now casting elderly couples


Bonjour Mrs. Wong,



We are presently searching for a performing elderly couple over the age of 55 or 60 years old and more; a couple that has grey hair and/or can look like grandparents.



We would like to identify a couple urgently to possibly replace or rotate with our performers who are currently doing a ballroom/adagio dancing act on our show Zumanity in Las Vegas. However, we are open to any type of performance by an elderly couple.



You will find attached more information about this great opportunity. The first document describes our search for a ballroom couple for short term replacements or rotation possibilities, the second document lists our search for an acrobatic/circus variety number, which is the initial number that was on the show at its conception. We are now open to finding ballroom couples as back-up as well as elderly acrobatic performers.



We hope you might have suggestions or references to make that may be interested in this great adventure.



Looking forward to hearing from you.



Sincerely,



Lydie Lavigne
