My name is Emma and this summer I spent basically my whole summer at Circus Smirkus camp. Here, I worked on an act at the advanced session of the camp. They have three sections of advanced camp, and I participated in “individual acts”. I worked with one coach for two weeks on a wire/ hand balancing act. I was attached to a thin rope the whole time and balanced both on the wire and on my hands! The theme of it was supposed to be a spider spinning its web. It was amazing to work on, and I highly recommend any circus loving kid to go to Smirkus camp! I’ve been going there for 5 years now and it is basically my home away from home and where my passion for circus arts started!
