ABC Wednesday...Q is For...R is For

CircEsteem birthday tradition-a clown pie to the face.   
Can't beat the classics!
Quirky, quixotic, quintessential...

Circus arts may be seen as all of the above.   It's an unconventional, romantic choice and may be seen as impractical, odd-ball, and eccentric.    But the kids and adults who practice circus arts are quick on their feets...and quick thinking--juggling balls, rings, bowling pins and life with finesse.   They're quiet when doing physical comedy, stage combat and clowning routines, and they're quite adept at making others laugh.   The sky's the limit when they soar on trapeze, or climb silks, Chinese Pole or Spanish Web!!   We adore circus arts and never plan to quit.
