    Lions in a cage. A trainer with a whip snaps close, but never hits the Lion. Then he puts his head inside the Lion's mouth as the crowd cheers. The Lion burps.


  • icon Strong Man
    Strong Man

    He is wearing a tiger outfit and is a bit chubby. The audience loves him as he lifts a car. (Not really)

    These artists are all from the same family. They are the famous Zambonis. The youngest is 12 and the oldest is 75. Amazing.

    Clowns are great from far away. They are funny and wear silly outfits. But they can be very 'scary kids.'



Statement

Songs and dances for young kids in music/dance classes. They are all about the circus. I played trumpet in a Circus band when I was in High School. My mother got sneezed on by an Elephant. The music was originally written for the elementary school dance instructor in the London school system. Later bought and addapted to the New York elementary school system. There are presentlly 50k copies out there, somewhere.
