At the camp…

Well, we are at an acrobatics training camp which is held in a kind of ‘circus’ school. A chance for a group of kids – and us! – to learn some new tricks from other specialists.

It means a lot of hard work – wall bars and free bars, for example…

Nothing amiss with some really basic exercises too…

We check out their usual tumbling skills…

Not forgetting the artistic apparatus:

They get to try out cleverer (harder) stuff individually:

…and a chance to mix pleasure with fun – a chance to cool off being essential here at this time of year:

We’re having fun too. The leaders here don’t seem so keen on working with groups as we are, but we will see what we can introduce later in the week.

There is more about our style in here – lots more – and in the books which follow. By the way, the book was nominated for the Polari Prize but did not make the final cut. Oh well!

About tonycavanagh

Born Northampton UK; school Oxford UK and Oak Ridge Tennessee, where I met my wonderful partner Dave, also from UK. Oak Ridge is our main training base for acrobatics and circus stuff, but we also established a base in Wales (UK) to serve us when we are working in Europe. Our 'story', of finding gay love, learning the acrobatics trade and then of how we got shot at during our show (and worse was to follow - just to prove that the risks of being an acrobat are not always the most obvious ones!) are now available in my three books 'Loving the Boy', 'The Power of Love' and 'Against All Odds'. Links available on most blog posts. Actually, waiting for the imminent arrival of the first printed copies was far scarier than anything we do in performance. A fourth book - not about us but exploring the sadness of a gay Native American boy denied his true identity - is currently with an agent for evaluation. watch for 'Let The Future Find Me' in due time. And now to book five... another boy, another quest... seems its always boys...
