Alyssa Morar graduated from the New England Center for Circus Arts professional training program and now tours the world with her elegant aerial silks act.

Circus lovers of all ages can head to the Barre Opera House this Saturday for some locally grown excitement. 

"Ruckus-A Cirque Spectacular", combines traditional circus elements like trapeze artistry and juggling with music, dance and theater. 

It's the latest production from Nimble Arts, a performance company run by twin aerialists Elsie Smith and Serenity Smith Forchion. 

The sisters also founded the New England Center For Circus Arts, a circus school based in Brattleboro.  

Serenity Smith Forchion discusses this weekend's show.
