Sharing smiles and cheer, Imagine Circus performers gallivanted around the festival grounds at Spring LEAF 2017! Katie and Kaci taught aerial demos in the Family Adventure Village on the aerial platform rig (built by Circus Gear), featuring four aerial hammocks low to the ground for children to learn basic poses and inversions. Following the interactive demos, Katie and Kaci performed partner acrobatics, captivating the attention of children and adults alike. Ben roved the grounds, performing a live and improv hoop act involving a progression from single to double and triple techniques, ranging from classic circus to contemporary hoop dance. Mindy performed spinning skirt, an ethereal and elegant, meditative spinning inspired by Sufi Dervishes. The entire crew came together to lead the LEAF Parade, accompanied by the rhythmic offerings of the Zabumba drummers. LEAF is an amazing festival, perfect for families, music lovers, and creativity advocates. Mark your calendar for Fall LEAF 2017— October 19-22, 2017.
