Irina dances into practice

Acrobatics fans will be cock-a-hoop that one of the world's largest circuses is returning to London.

Hula hoop specialist Irina Akimova is one of Cirque du Soleil's stars coming back to the capital's Royal Albert Hall next year.

The venue has announced the dates for the next run featuring Akimova, pictured here outside in a fishnet body and leggings combination, with friends.

They will play a limited run of their Kooza show from January 6 to February 8.

Akimova is renowned for her legendary balance, skill, speed and flexibility.

The Russian entertainer has performed throughout the world and will spearhead a show comprising two of circus's biggest draws - clowning and acrobatics.

Promoters promise a show staged in an exotic, electrifying visual context saturated in chills, thrills and surprises. It traces the tale of a depressed loner seeking his place among the world via trapeze artists, the amazing Wheel of Death, high wires and contortionists.
