“When I was small, my mom took me to gymnastics and I chose to trampoline,” Tokuma said. “It was fun because you could go higher with the springs. When I was competing at the Japanese Nationals, someone came to see me from Cirque du Soleil and told me to send in a (demo) video, and I later trained with Cirque du Soleil in Montreal, Canada.”

Dralion's story is easy to understand and a good show for the entire family, she said.

Cirque du Soleil publicist Julie Desmarais describes the production as a colorful and high-level fusion of energy, outstanding acrobatics and world-class performers.

“We have tested our audiences from with a 3-year-old to an 89-year-old and they all had a very good time,” Desmarais said.
