Napoleon Dynamite had the Liger! It was half lion and half tiger.   Cirque du Soleil has Dralion. It's half dragon and half lion.  The spectacular show invades the Budweiser Events Center Tonight. (Thursday, February 2nd) The show features  50 international acrobats, gymnasts, musicians and singers.

I had the opportunity to sit in on a rehearsal this week and watched the amazing Chinese acrobats.  These girls have the flexibility of Gumby and the strength of a PBR Bull and they are teeny  tiny.  Here is a little taste of what I witnessed at the rehearsal:
