'Cavalia': An Equine-Human Ballet

The horse's connection to both freedom and power is the driving theme behind a new show, a kind of equine-human ballet called Cavalia.

President and creative director Normand Latourelle started Cavalia -- which is an invented word drawing on the French word cheval, or horse -- after helping to create the renowned Cirque du Soleil. The show features 47 horses and 32 acrobats and aeralists.
