Circus School of Arizona does Steampunk for AzMPI

The Circus School of Arizona and CSA Events recently performed at and were two of the generous sponsors for the Arizona Sunbelt chapter of Meeting Professionals International  (AzMPI’s)  annual awards gala at the Carefree Resort and Conference Center in Carefree, Arizona. I was honored to be invited as a guest of the Circus School and to be able to grab some shots of these talented performers.  It was also a great opportunity to practice using my flash*.

Here are a few favorites from this fantastic evening:

The event had a Steampunk theme and  Circus School of Arizona / CSA Events did a great job designing costumes and performances to fit the theme.

My favorite was the Steampunk ballerina:

I’m consistently in awe of how well the Circus School of Arizona is able to produce performances that perfectly fit the venue and theme of any event and to provide such crowd-pleasing and interactive fun.
