DD is pretty well-behaved in public. I took her to a quieter dance performance and I had to remove her from the theatre after 40 minutes due to squirming, that show was way more boring. I love Cirque du Soleil and she likes dancing, is she too young to stay seated for the whole show or do you think she can make it?<br><br>
Thanks

My newly four yr old LOVED it. This show is anything but boring. I wouldn't hesitate to take her. And, at 3, if she needs to stop sitting, let her stand. She won't be blocking anyone.<br><br>

yes - I took my 1 year old a couple of years ago and it was fine. It's not the kind of place that perfect quiet is needed or expected, imo. Have fun!

3.5 yo are a very varied lot. My general rule about taking my preschooler to stuff is mostly based on how upset <b><i>I</i></b> will be if we need to leave early. If it isn't too expensive and it isn't too long a drive to get there, I figure we'll give it a try and if we have to leave early oh well. However, if it's really expensive or a long trip with no other reason to go to that area, I'm not going to do it.<br><br>
You never know how something like this will go with preschoolers, something might scare them, or they just might not be in the right mood for it. I want to be able to respect DS's need to leave something without it being a huge deal.

<span style="font-family:Georgia;">Yes! Absolutely!<br><br>
This is, of course, child dependent. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> But I really think most LO's one LOVE it and be OK.<br><br>
We plan to take our DD the next time they come to town.</span>

<p>I think she would be ok..especially if you say she is pretty well behaved. A show like the one you are referring too will def. keep her interest and on the plus side, she won't have to sit and be absolutely quiet.<br>
You also might want to consider what <i>eepster</i> said too as a just incase, but you know your child best and i'm sure will be able to make the best decision! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"></p>

Yes, I was worried about what eepster said - I would be quite upset to have to leave if she got too scared! Also the tickets are kind of pricy, would be a shame to waste a ticket. But I figure if we sit in the back on the aisle it should be fine, right?<br><br>
I have taken her to a couple of hockey games as well. One she was tired when we got there so she was squirming and miserable the whole time. The other one she loved, all the cheering etc.<br><br>
Guess I should just order those tickets!<br><br>
Thanks
