Profile: Circus Arts Online Tutorial index page profile page

These tutorials are based on interviews I made with many of my fellow performers in the circus.The exercises and advice come from some of the most acclaimed circus artists in the business and have been collected in this web site to provide many of the fundamental skills used in circus and the variety arts. It is my intention that the tutorials be used as a supplemental guide to a circus arts program by individuals or schools.
