Cavalia: Go behind the scenes and enjoy an after-the-show private party and see these fabulous performers one-on-one.
Art in Bloom: Be one of just a few to enjoy an up-close-and-personal three hour floral Master Class with Rene van Rems at Art in Bloom Flower Symposium and Festival sponsored by the Dallas Museum of Art League, benefiting the Dallas Museum of Art
Many events have all sorts of VIP features, if you're willing to pay the money, of course. These two events are happening now and it's the perfect time to join in the fun.
First of all, there are no bad seats. Each seat is positioned at such an angle that from no matter where you are seated, you can see the horses' hooves. And the sand. And the water pond. Opera glasses are so cool! Very up close.
Concession stands are well-stocked with soft drinks, etc., food, wine and more. Girls, there are plenty of restrooms. Guys, it's worth the trip.
This is one evening where everyone is happy at the end and sort of dreamy, too. The young adults and teenagers we noticed during the show were entranced. Leaning forward in their seats.
As a very special treat for yourself, mom, kids and friends .... everyone ... sign up for the Cavalia Rendez-Vous packages, which include a fine selection of hors d’oeuvres and refreshments, including wine and beer, free parking, a special souvenir, and an exclusive tour behind the scenes in the Cavalia Stables are also available (starting at $165 for adults, $95 for children 12 and under). Prices are before service charges and 8.25% tax.(Photo of Magali by Lynne Glazer)
If I had a special birthday or celebration between now and April 9th, I'd sign up, invite a few friends to go dutch treat and have a blast, an early dinner beforehand at the restaurant next door. I can't remember the name, but it's evident if you drive by: It's the huge white tents on the southwest side of Dallas North Tollway, in between Belt Line and Spring Valley.
Best bet: Go out to the site and buy the glossy paperback book or two (buy one to 'get-it' even after the show) to present as a teaser to friends, buy your tickets online NOW and you're on your way.
Yes, she is standing up and riding four stallions while jumping over a hurdle ... there are no mares in the show. This is Estelle, Magali's sister. Wow.

Here's the VIP ringer:
