Shepparton ACE College circus students recently performed at a special showcase at the Darebin Arts Centre in Preston as part of the college’s partnership with Westside Circus.
Westside Circus turned 21 years old and the showcase performance was a wonderful celebration of all Westside Circus has built up during the past 21 years.
The Shepparton ACE College crew, known as Altitude — Shepparton, worked collaboratively with their trainers to devise an amazing performance that included juggling, clowning and mini trampoline tricks.
The circus students thrilled their audience; some flew though the air doing seemingly improbable feats of twisting and turning, another used his hilarious clowning techniques to have the audience in stitches and others juggled hats making a difficult skill look easy.
Altitude — Shepparton has been training together for almost three years and has achieved remarkable success though the informal strengths-based learning environment of the circus studio.
There is something for everyone in circus training and all young people involved are able to succeed.
Shepparton ACE College students are training in circus as part of their Certificate III in Community Dance, Theatre and Events.
