When it comes to the job of performing in a circus there are many and varied skills needed such as stamina, energy, co-ordination, dexterity, and perseverance.
An affinity to high places, the love for showmanship, and the natural ability to entertain are all a part of a circus performer’s repertoire. And the varied tools these performers use, from the trapeze, horizontal bar to the tight wire, are unlike any other.
