Circus for Everyone!
This week we spotted an article from the Guardian newspaper about a 67 year-old lady who has just starting learning trapeze.
Nikki Kenward initially trained in contemporary dance, and after retiring from dance teaching, performing, and giving talks on dance history, she retrained in her 40’s as a cranial osteopath. Now, at 67, she is studying on master’s degree in directing circus with Bristol Circomedia, she wants to create diverse and inclusive performances. In the world of the circus ‘anything goes and anything is possible’. Everyone can get involved in circus whatever age you are! Read more about this here.
Our amazing circus performers and circus skills workshop leaders have been busy at events and schools this month.
They taught circus skills workshops for Myton School in Warwick for Transition year 6’s.
We finally got our fire show kit out and performed a special fire performance for a surprise private 50th birthday party in Bristol, complete with flaming heart and a bespoke 50 fire sculpture!
The wonderfully colourful butterfly stilt walkers were out in Bath City Centre as part of BATH BID family summer Sunday’s programme.
We have an action packed September ahead and will be performing stilt walking, juggling for Student Freshers week at Bristol University and balloon modelling and bubble shos in Cheltenham and family events and you can catch The Cake Lady stilt walkers at Oswestry Food Festival too.
