Brothers Johan and Jonathan Caro each found their partners more than a decade ago, and they all contribute in a daring performance as part of Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Presents Super Circus Heroes.
The two brothers grew up as part of the Lopez Family troupe in Monterrey, Mexico, practicing acts on the high wire and motorcycles for five hours a day. As they grew older, they toured Latin America with their family as part of the fourth generation to work in the circus.
Jonathan was the first to fall in love. It was in 2002 in Mexico, and Maria was performing a high-wire act with her family at the same circus.
Not long afterward, Johan spotted Erika in the audience in Mexico. She’s now described as the “daring beauty who stands fearlessly inside the Globe of Steel” as the two brothers on motorcycles speed within inches of her.
