You may have noticed a red and white-striped tent in the Arundel Mills Mall parking lot. It’s the “Flip Circus” and the new national tour has a bond with Ukraine.

The dancers have known the Vazquez family-owned “Flip Circus” for years. Alexa Vazquez said when the war began, they knew they needed to get the group out.

We got really worried, and we were like let’s do something to help them, either get out of there as soon as possible, and that’s what we did,” Vazquez, said.

Although their two male performers had to stay in Ukraine, the troupe is using the spotlight to remind people that the war isn’t over.
