I have been a performer in the circus since I was nine years old. I love every day of it. One may think that we are all a bunch of odd balls and freaks but they are wrong. We are just normal folks not unlike anyone else. We laugh, we play, we work hard. The only difference is that our place of work is a public forum for all to see. I love it, God knows I love it so. The cheers and reaction of the crowds stimulates every one of my senses. The spot lights, the sounds of the performers swinging, dancing and taming. I watch not from the center ring but from beneath the sound of the crowd and action. I see the expression of each performer as they prepare their craft and I know I am in every performance for I prepare every performer. You see; I am a bridal makeup artist Manchester.
