Tampa, Florida -- The UniverSoul Circus truly was a class act Thursday putting on a sneak peek performance at Rampello Downtown Partnership School. All the clowning around produced some big smiles on little faces.

And there were some lessons to be learned, like the definition of flexibility as a group of very bendy women took the stage or the properties of propulsion as acrobats flipped in the air.
And then there was just puppy love. White poodles doing a conga line seemed to be a favorite with the kids.
10 News anchor Reggie Roundtree literally got dragged into the act by a clown, who urged him to pretend he was a rocker.
"Do it! Do it!" yelled the kids.
"I'm down on my knees playing air guitar," Reg says with a laugh about the experience.
But this sneak peek was just a taste and for this young crowd hungry for more UniverSoul food -- Reggie and 10 News had just the ticket -- actually hundreds of them.
"I have 400 free tickets so you can go," Reggie announced to the students, holding the tickets high.
"Thank you Mr. Reggie!" they screamed back.
