LARA JACOBS RIGOLO –
THE BALANCE GODDESS
Lara Jacobs Rigolo completed her training at the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theatre and worked in New York for many years. She toured with the Rigolo Swiss Nouveau Cirque ensemble for several seasons. Maedir Eugster taught his daughter the spectacle when Cirque du Soleil selected the “Sanddorn Balance” as the main attraction for their touring production Amaluna. As «Balance Goddess» in Amaluna, Lara Jacobs has enchanted thousands of spectators in Canada and the USA. Her interpretation of the “Sanddorn Balance” is greeted with standing ovations, and she receives rave reviews from the press. She is currently performing Amaluna in Tarragona, Spain.
