WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — It has all the excitement of a Cirque du Soleil show.

But this performance is made up almost entirely of local students!

The students are part of the Florida Aerial Dance and Circus Arts, led by Maria-Elena Marso.

After years in show business, she founded the program in 2011 as a way to train the next generation of circus stars.

The students train in Stuart and Jupiter.

And they're preparing for a high-energy performance this weekend.

They'll be performing a holiday show, complete with acrobatics, aerial stunts, even a professional magician.

The show is Saturday night at the Duncan Theatre at Palm Beach State College near Lake Worth Beach.
