Milton-Ulladulla students reveled in the chance to train with the circus while it was in town recently.
Circus35South artists took to the big top on the weekend to learn from Webers Circus performers during their performances in town.
Owner and artistic director of Circus35South Sharon McCutcheon said the students “had a ball”.
“The workshop was fantastic,” she said.
“The show is brilliant with new acts and incredible performances. Natalie and Rudi, owners of the [Webers] circus, always welcome our kids to train with them.
“The circus community in Australia has a family ethos and they are very supportive of young people who want to keep the ancient art form alive. Especially in this day and age when kids spend many hours in front of screens and live entertainment is becoming a thing of the past; the circus is an authentic live theatre performance which the whole family can enjoy.
“Our kids had a ball at the workshop and enjoyed learning from professional circus performers under the big top.”
Circus35South will perform as part of the Blessing of the Fleet Festival in Ulladulla on Sunday, April 8 from 3pm at the Marlin Hotel.
