We've just finished up another energetic and intensely creative week of Girl Circus Camp in Eugene. It's been a fantastic experience to work with such strong and persistent girls, and everyone has acquired many new circus skills! They've really been the best witches they can be. As one performer said, "Girl Circus Camp is so great, I wish I could do it every day forever."
Special thanks to Bounce Gym and trainers Darcy and A for their work and commitment to girl power!

Success! The Girl Circus show this year was, as usual, fantastic. Here's what some of our audience members and friends had to say: "Lots of super cool witches, and, as usual, Girl Circus passed the Bechdel test with flying colors," and "The whole family enjoyed the show. Really impressed to see the young women on the silks. My two year old daughter was watching and clapping... I may need to sign her up when she's old enough," and "The creativity is always impressive. Girls were really working hard and pulling off their roles. Having fun with it too," and even "The theme of Girl Circus this year was a stroke of genius. It was deeply awesome to watch all the girls calling upon their powers and using them for good."
We all had an excellent time performing out there, and we're so glad you loved it! If by some chance you haven't seen the show, we will be presenting Girl Circus WITCHES at the Wildish Theatre in Springfield on October 4/5. Thanks for a great Fair!
