Want to run away to the circus?
Juggling, stilt-walking, human pyramid building and acrobatics sound like fun?
Cirque Nova in east London is offering free - yes, that's FREE - circus skills training to people with disabilities.
It's run by trapeze artist Jean-Marie Akkerman who used to be Artistic Director of a circus school in Paris.
He teaches 14-25 year olds skills such as aerial harness work, aerial silks, aerial bungee, aerial hoop and acro-balance (that's human pyramid building to you and me.) It's all for fun but with the possibility of future employment at the end of the training.
The group he teaches performed recently at Liberty in Trafalgar Square.
If that sounds like something you might be interested in look at Cirque Nova and get in touch with them.
I asked if they would train me to be a lion tamer but they told me I would be better as a clown :-)
