Houston has been graced with the presence of the Cirque du Soleil production of Amaluna. This incredible show blends music, gymnastics, dance and theater to create a one-of-a-kind show guaranteed to please audiences of all ages.
Amaluna is being shown at the Sam Houston Race Park in a tent that has been set up specifically for the show, which arrived in Houston on February 12 and will continue through March 22.
This show is an intense love story that also has moments of comedic relief that make the audience erupt into laughter, especially the adults on some jokes that may fly over the heads of younger attendees. Amaluna involves live music to accompany the acrobatic acts including several guitarists and drums positioned behind the stage.
These acrobatic acts make guests feel like they are watching a combination of Olympic gymnastics and a circus. The performers contort their bodies in ways that many people could never even imagine along with swinging on trapezes, parallel bars and while soaring through the air.
Many of the acts in Amaluna are mind-boggling like the balancing act of pieces of wood, the juggling and the ability for a person to hold another fully-grown person in the air by just the use of their foot. The Cirque du Soleil performers give a new definition to the adjective of strong.
Rather than the usual Instagram videos people post of themselves lifting large amounts of weight in Crossfit gyms, the performers in Amaluna prove strength is not just about being able to lift weight with your arms. These performers demonstrate the use of muscles that most people had no idea existed.
Houston has been extremely blessed to have the privilege of hosting Amaluna. This jaw-dropping show is worth the money because it amazes people of all ages, genders and backgrounds and offers the chance to see unusual but spectacular talents.

Houston Hauttie Launches Her Own Line
Andrea Phillips grew up in Houston and currently lives in London where she launched her brand, AG Phillips. While in the corporate world and living abroad, she noticed a distinct difference in quality and price, and that lead her to create her own line.
Beverly dress $535
Through her brand AG Phillips, Andrea wants to provide women with a luxury product that will fit the needs of women who want something a bit more refined than what is currently being offered in contemporary sportswear – something that can be worn season after season. Andrea wants to give women the look and feel of luxury by using designer European fabric, but she also designs it to be versatile and a product that women can relate to---ladylike and tailored. Andrea’s collection can be found at Tootsies and online at http://www.agphillips.com/

The Children’s Assessment Center (The CAC) hosted the First Annual Bash at the Brewery Event on Tuesday, February 24th at St. Arnold’s Brewery. David Key and David Acosta, CAC Board members, generously shared their talent with the guests as they performed popular classic-rock hits with their fellow band members of The Offering Band. The Offering Band is a collection of working professionals giving back by playing a collection of music for no charge at charity fundraisers. More than 150 guests mingled, listened to music and enjoyed barbeque from Goode Co. Barbeque all while sampling the many beers St. Arnold’s is known for. Elaine Stolte, Executive Director of The CAC, thanked everyone for attending and for showing their support. Stolte added that The CAC is thankful for supporters such as the attendees at the Bash at the Brewery who help not only spread awareness, but also encourage prevention of child sexual abuse. Dr. Lawrence Thompson, Supervisor of Therapy and Psychological Services at The CAC, also shared a story and a letter from a 15-year old sexual abuse survivor who has received counseling services from The CAC. Dr. Thompson stated that her story was an example of the strength and courage of so many of the sexual abuse survivors The CAC helps each and every year. Other Board Members in attendance included: Paulette Arana, Diane Caplan, Emily Essaye, Allison Flikerski, Lauren Maloy and CAC Board President Gail Prather. Sarah Cotting, Amanda Seaberg and Megan Vondra were also in attendance.
