Grace has spent the past two weeks under the big top at the Sailor Circus summer camp. This was her second year participating and she loved every minute of it. At the beginning of the session each child selects (choosing their favorites, numbering them 1-3) which skill they would like to focus on and perform at the show, which is held in the evening on the final day of camp. Grace received her second choice, the double trapeze or in circus lingo known as the "duo trap". She and her partner, Maverick (he was the anchor and Grace was the performer of the skills so to speak), had a great time performing together.
My photographs of the evening are of poor quality to say the least, but here are two decent ones.
The apparatus on which she performed
It was an action packed two weeks for certain. Grace is already looking forward to attending the newly forming "Circus Arts" classes and is counting down the months until she can officially join the amazing Sailor Circus!
