The Stilt Walkers of Baie-Saint-Paul 1984 A few young entertainers were part of a club called The High Heels Club. Most of the entertainers walked on stilts and that is how they got their name. The group also included fire-blowers, jugglers, and contortionists. There was a festival for 450th anniversary of the arrival of Jacques Cartier in Canada. They needed a spectacle for all residents of Quebec to join in the festivities. Guy Laliberte organized a show of singers, stilt-walkers, fire-breathers, contortionists, jugglers, and clowns. The people of Quebec loved it! From then on Cirque Du Soleil was born. Diffusion
