The Wenatchee Youth Circus offers children the opportunity to learn all aspects of the circus, including walking the high wire, flying on the trapeze, juggling, and even how to be a perfect clown.
Circus member Daniel McGee gave a short performance, then chatted about his experience with the circus which he joined when he was 10 years old (he's 17 now). His mother, Kim McGee, shared her experience as a parent volunteer. They also talked about an exchange program between Wenatchee Youth Circus and about 300 other circuses around the country, through the Circus4Youth program.
