Why am I doing these workshops in March? Why do you have to pay in advance? These workshops are a fundraiser to support Spark! Circus’ upcoming performance tour. The money raise by advance sales of these workshops will support the shared costs of the tour, including toys and circus supplies that we donate to the refugee camps, orphanages and schools around Mae Sot.I will be participating in Spark! Circus in Thailand from January 5 – February 22, 2013 and Since I will be busy preparing my acts, costumes and workshops for the kids before I go, I will do the Tokyo classes when I return. Plus, I expect to have some great new moves from my fellow performers to add to the workshops!
