The Amazing Cirque-Tacular New Years Eve Charity Gala

Posted on by Carisa Hendrix in Articles for Performers Leave a comment

Getting to spend New Year Eve at a wonderfully fun event with some of my very favorite local entertainers was an incredibly lucky break. I had no idea till I arrived that the event had booked Mr Snowdon the amazing stilt walker, Visha Loo the insanely talented contortionist and Stephon Diachuk with his adorable juggling act.

We were also able to premiere our Acrobalance act after all the exhausting rehearsal. After reviewing the video of the performance 100 times i’m pleased to say it was very ok. 🙂

Working on my Butterfly Cut

After a long day of rehearsal I’ve come home to work on my card manipulation skills. Nothing makes you feel like a nerd than drilling false shuffles and watching star trek but it is definatly my idea of a great Saturday night.

Thought I would feature the tutorials I’m using in case you’d like to follow along.

Lately I’ve been taking my balloon artistry more seriously. I want to get into building more advanced sculptures and designs. As a way of practicing I’ve been having visitors to our apartment challenge me to design a new creation on the spot.

I’m really proud of this one 🙂


Fire Eating Students Make me So Proud

This video is of the incredible Adam Lobo, a fire eating student of mine that is just killing it. When I first created the Fire Eating DVD I never thought I would see anyone flourish like he and a few others have. I really can’t take credit for any of his skill, this is 100% pure star quality.
