Contortion Envy in Maui

Posted June 22, 2009 by Katie Blais


Eeek!  I am just a few days away from my summer vacation, and that means it's time to bite the bullet and take out my bikini. Every March, in those first few warm days after a long New England winter, I think, " I have three months to get in shape for the beach." But inevitably, I get derailed by drinks after work, French fries, and my couch, and before I know it's late June and I am faced with two choices: hide under a muumuu all summer or just suck in my gut and get a tan with the rest of the sun babies.

With the opening of Cirque Polynesia at Kaanapali’s Hyatt Resort in Maui, beach-goers in Hawaii have even more motivation to get in shape before hitting the white sand beaches this summer. The new show combines Polynesian culture and crazy Cirque du Soleil artistry, with a cast of contortionists, acrobats, mother-and-daughter high-wire walkers (6th and 7th generation!). You know that French fries are not in these performers' diets. Have you seen Cirque performers? It’s like they are one big muscle. 
So, if you are planning a vacation to Maui this summer, don't miss this spectacle. The show is appropriate for the whole family. And try not to feel too bad about your muffin top when you leave!
