We found Circus Arts Institute pretty early on in our Atlanta experience.
I wanted Skye to be able to continue her "PE" classes, as it were.
So I managed to find a place where she/we could continue studying aerial arts.
The Circus Arts Institute became much more than that.
They became family.
Wednesday night was our last night at class, on this particular journey. I feel that we have not seen the last of Atlanta or our circus family here.
I made a few music mixes for the class, one of them included the Eartha Kitt song, the Day the Circus Left Town, so I decided to use it as the title to my blog post.
Then I found out that Eric Clapton also wrote a song entitled Circus Left Town about the day with his son before he died, beautiful song, but so sad.
No More Tears
Enough of the bitter aspect of our nomad life, and what did that video have to do with us or the circus class or Atlanta or anything really.
Check out the pics and videos of our time at the Circus Arts Institute.
We had never been on the Spanish Web before arriving in Atlanta.
It's not my favorite apparatus, but Skye has certainly taken to it.
I should probably learn to endure its cruel pain more because it can be a pretty macho and bad-ass.
The videos speak for themselves, for the most part.
Fellow hooper and circus gal, Katina aka the Happy Hooper made this amazing hula hoop for Skye.
The two of them took turns dazzling us with their skills and the newest hoop to our growing collection of circular toys.
We had a great time playing and learning new skills.
Yet another reason to return to Atlanta.
