Yesterday I saw Dralion, the circus show being staged by the Cirque de soliel in Brisbane this summer. It was fabulous and the performers are mindboggling-ly talented. It was the kind of show that anyone could enjoy, families were there in force because it was a matinee show and it was sweet to watch young and old faces alight with joy and wonder.
I did classes in aerials and general circus skills at the supportive and safe space of the Vulcana womens circus classes this year. The instructors are so encouraging and skilled, they make everything fun, challenging, exciting...it is a womens only space and attracts a diverse group of home makers, career performers, students, business women, etc. It is a wonderful learning environment and is a great way to get fit while learning new skills, meeting people and having fun.
They are having a show case this Saturday at the powerhouse and it is on at 2. I can't be there (because of the markets) but if you are local and are interested in seeing what its about, do go along, gold coin donation for entry and the show usually goes for about an hour.
