Circuses like the Ringling Brothers have been around for over a hundred years. At present Universoul Circus performs an average of five-hundred shows in thirty two different destinations all over the world, aside from the US and Canada. Founded by Cedric Walker, Universoul Circus came into being in 1994. It was the result of a vision its founder had in which he wanted to explore other talents people had, aside from the more common dancers and singers. He was not only interested in Americans but also in people outside the US so as to create a show that had a wide range of talent and a diverse combination of performers. The founders then began by conducting research on African American entertainment from as long as a century ago. They then stumbled upon a circus owned by an African American that had been operating since 1893. Cedric Walker then came up with the idea of using hip hop musicals alongside animal acts and vaudeville.
