"My daughter also attended Girl Circus camp last summer. She found her creative outlet with the Girl Circus. She has spent the months following continuing to practice what she learned, especially tumbling, and is constantly challenging herself to try new elements."

Thanks friends for all your support! We had a great show at the Wildish Theater this past month, and I cannot emphasize enough how much fun it was! As one parent said, 
"I can't recommend Girl Circus enough for what it has accomplished in empowering each and every young lady who it touches...all of them are better for having been a part of the wonderful community of people involved."
