Ladies and not ladies,

we present for you...


VOICEOVER: Cirque du Soleil, the
world's biggest and most successful

circus company.

Over the last three decades,

Cirque's thrilled more than
160 million people worldwide.

BOTH: Peek-a-boo!

With truly magical shows, each more
daring than the last.

And for the world's most
extraordinary circus performers,

joining Cirque du Soleil
is the pinnacle.

As they prepare to bring their new
show Kooza to Australia,

Cirque is giving one young Australian

the opportunity of a lifetime.

Earlier this year,

hundreds of hopefuls auditioned
across the country

for a chance to win a life-changing

to train with this
incredible company.

Now just the top four performers
will compete for this ultimate prize.

I live, breathe, eat, sleep circus.

Every since I was four years old,

I've dreamed of performing
on the big stage.

I would love to win this.

It would mean that my hard work and
my dedication has been recognised.

Ever since I can remember, Cirque du
Soleil has been my dream.

I want this so badly, I'm gonna
give it everything I can.

Their quest to win will start on
the other side of the world.

The top four are going to travel here
to Buenos Aires, Argentina

to see first-hand Cirque's latest
show Kooza.

With exclusive
behind-the-scenes access...

You're gonna meet and work with some
of the best artists in the world.

The competition will push
them to their limits.


That was probably
the best performance

I've ever done in my life.

But ultimately, only one will
run away with Cirque du Soleil.

It was my dad's dream to be in
the circus, and now it's my life.

When my dad was younger, he always
wanted to run away with the circus

as a flying trapeze artist,

but never really got
the chance to do it,

so when I told him I wanted
to do circus,

he was so happy for me,

cos I was living his dream for him.

So I started gymnastics
when I was really young.

Ad since then, I've been to a few
different circus schools

and now it's everything
that I do every day.

I'm a hula-hooper but I also do
hand-dancing, contortions.

This is an amazing experience to see
what it's like behind the scenes,

to meet the performers that are in
the shows that I've watched.

It's gonna be incredible to see them
as people and not just performers.

But Mieke faces
some tough competition

in chasing her Cirque dream

from another Victorian,
24-year-old Daniel.

I'm the only boy
in a family of dancers.

My mum's a belly dancer, my sisters
are into classical ballet.

I'm very active.
I hate sitting still.

When I was at dance school
in year 12,

I met these crazy circus performers

and I just went with it.

My circus specialty is 'roue cyr'.

The best way to describe it is like
a giant metal hula-hoop,

I stand in the middle like the
Da Vinci man and I spin like a coin.

What's really gonna give me an edge
in this competition

is my dance background
and my musicality.

See ya, mate!

When they reach Buenos Aires,

the top four won't just be treated
to a look at Cirque's new show,

they'll also be vying for the coveted
Cirque Scholarship.

Ready? All good?

I'm from a family
of circus performers.

My older sister, my twin sister
and I, we all grew up doing circus.

I was always afraid of heights.

I never liked to go on the trapeze
or anything like that,

I like to have my feet on the
