So I was talking to the people who are involved in Activate and found out that coming up in October they are getting the people from NICA (National Institute of Circus Arts) to come in and have a circus skills day. Activate get guest speakers each term and this month the young people will get to learn a few tricks and skills from the circus which is pretty cool. I’ve been told that they will learn juggling, plate spinning, Diablo (no clue what that is), devil sticks and acrobatics. I’m so jealous they get to learn this cool stuff, so look out for pictures in Mid-October. Let’s hope not a lot of plates get broken and hope they get to explain to me what Diablo is...the only thing I know about Diablo is that it means devil in Spanish?!
Anyway one of the NICA people who will be talking to the group will be James Brown (cool name!) who is known as an international teacher of the Circus arts worldwide, pretty sure that’s one of the coolest jobs to have! But in terms of what the group will get from the skills lesson is that it’s a great way to get the young people in Activate to try out something new and different. It’s something not a lot of people get to experience and if their lucky maybe they just might run away with the circus
On that note I will love you and leave you now.
