Batemans Bay students reveled in the chance to train with some of the world’s top circus performers during their latest tour of the South Coast.
Students from Clyde Circus and Ulladulla’s Circus 35 South took to the ring on Saturday to learn the tricks of the big top from Webers Circus performers.
Circus 35 South’s artistic director, Sharon McCutcheon, said the students “had a ball”.
“The workshop was fantastic,” she said.

“The show is brilliant with new acts and incredible performances. Natalie and Rudi, owners of the [Webers] circus, always welcome our kids to train with them.
“The circus community in Australia has a family ethos and they are very supportive of young people who want to keep the ancient art form alive.
“Especially in this day and age when kids spend many hours in front of screens and live entertainment is becoming a thing of the past; the circus is an authentic live theatre performance which the whole family can enjoy.
