THEY LOVE CIRCUS! Brian and Stefan H. really LOVE circus! Stefan is working on new spins and balances on the tandem unicycle made up of two unicycles fastened together. It is much harder than it looks and Stefan is working on prolonged wheelies into spins, direction changes and reverse riding. And, no, they did not coordinate their outfits. This is how they both showed up at the gym today for training.

SHE’S ON A ROLL!

Emi H. works diligently this evening to master her new trick, the Belly Roll, in the German Wheel with a helpful spot from Lyra C. This trick is quite scary to learn as your face comes very close to the floor before you rise up in the wheel in the second half of the skill. Congrats to Emi on her brave new skill on the German Wheel.

VAN GO!
In 2022, we hope to use the CircusWest van more than ever to bring circus workshops and performances to communities throughout B.C. We are excited as we have already booked more festivals, community and corporate events for 2022 than last year. Over the last 20 months, we have adapted and pivoted our circus offerings and performed in parades, on top of a school, in drive thru events, as online digital content, at B.C. resorts, in parks, in parking lots, around a sanctuary, in socially distanced theatres, hybrid conferences, and half capacity outdoor festivals. Like everyone, we persevered and showed resilience in these challenging times. The snow will soon melt and the recent variant will fade away and as it does the CircusWest van will be ready to bring our circus flair and sheer verve to you all across B.C. We are excited and know that 2022 will be a year to celebrate, cherish and to fully engage. Dream BIG with CircusWest!
