Have you ever dream about traveling around with the circus? In this post, I am going to tell you everything about living in a circus and traveling around with it. If you want, you can also read our previous posts about traveling by plane with kids and children safety in the car. If you are fascinated with the circus and if you can’t travel with it, why not hire some clowns to your own home?
The day-to-day in a circus is not easy, and the trips are perhaps the hardest part, especially because you never creates roots anywhere in the world.
On the other hand, you know the world traveling around with the circus, all paths, roads, and even the stones that go by.
Traveling around with the circus: A whole adventure!
The day at the circus starts very early. Usually, around six in the morning have begun to make preparations for the move to the next town.
All artists participate in the dismantling work, transportation and reassembly of the circus, so life is not easy for anyone.
For the public to enjoy the circus magic, the artists go through hours and hours of hard work. And when I say hard, I am saying really hard.
For example, an acrobat may also have to drive a truck, remove the tents, among many other tasks that are required to do.
There are times when every day these circus performers change places, sometimes there escapes a Sunday when only do one matinee and then they can enjoy the night with the family together.
Were you thinking that traveling around with the circus would be easy? Not at all!
If you think that the intervals of the shows are to rest, you’re wrong. It is during the breaks, of the evening or the night, many of the children’s circus learn to give the tumbling, juggling, tightrope walking and swinging on the trapeze.
They are usually veterans of the circus that teach children, and these now come from generations of circus families.
All children begin to learn circus arts from an early age. It is normal to see children 3 years to learn the art of parents. It is also very common that these children adopt the specific art of the parents, who comes from generation to generation.
So it is very common that a child of an acrobat becomes an acrobat as well.
So, if you were thinking that traveling around with the circus was very fun and easy, forget. The circus requires work, really hard work!
