BUS343 CASE STUDY 2 Summary of Background and Facts Cirque du Soleil may have had small beginnings, but over time it grew substantially. Cirque du Soleil was originally founded by a group of street performers who called themselves “Le Club des Talons Hauts” (The High-Heels Club) in Canada in 1984. At that time Cirque du Soleil employed 73 people, but by the end of 2001, the organization had over 2,100 employees worldwide, including 500 artists (DeLong & Vijayaraghavan, 2002). From 1984 to 1989 the average audiences who enjoyed the show every year was around 270,000, but this number grew to around 6 million in 2001. Cirque du Soleil used to only run one show at a time, but by 2002 there were eight different productions running on four continents. (DeLong & Vijayaraghavan, 2002. Cirque du Soleil was owned and managed by Laliberte (who started out as a musician and fire breather for the show) oversaw most of the creative production and Daniel Gautier managed most of the business side.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
