I grew up dancing, but I’ve never tried popping. So when Cirque Dreams ILLUMINATION rolled into town this week, I jumped at the chance to interview popper Robert Muraine (aka “Mr. Fantastic”) and get a one-on-one lesson. Click on the video below to see what I learned–and what you can expect from this incredible show!
Muraine gained national attention on season 4 of So You Think You Can Dance, represented the U.S. on NBC’s Superstar’s of Dance and starred in a national IKEA television commercial entitled What Goes Where.
Cirque Dreams ILLUMINATION is the latest show in the Cirque Dreams brand of entertainment, creators of international performance, touring and Broadway sensations Cirque Dreams Jungle Fantasy, Cirque Dreams Holidaze, Cirque Dreams Pandemonia, Cirque Dreams Coobrila, Cirque Ingenieux and the first show of its kind at sea…Cirque Dreams & Dinner on board the Norwegian Cruise Line EPIC.
