Did you know that the methology behind being a circus performer is to learn about injuries? Why? Because when you eventually are bruised or have serious rope burn, you can explain exactly how you got it....and in future, perhaps avoid it from happening again. These were the first encouraging words Adz and Ginni heard when they set out to NICA.
Tom and Shaun, graduating students from NICA, taught them the aerial hoop, the trapeze and a few tricks involving juggling and coordination.
