SO WHO ARE WE, EXACTLY?
Eric The Juggler and Classy M’Lassie are large and in charge at this operation. Eric got his start in Thunder Bay, Ontario whereas Classy grew up in the wild woods of Vancouver Island, and together we met at the middle in Saskatoon. Actually no, we met in Thunder Bay.
As official founder of CirqueWorks, Eric started this whole production by deciding to capitalize on his people skills, juggling skills, and complete disregard for convention. He moved on from his career as a full-time teacher in northwest Ontario and did what most of us would do: pick up a chainsaw and start juggling. Classy M’Lassie came on board in 2013 where she quickly put her natural weirdness into good use making balloon animals and riding a tiny bicycle. Back then the business was just two people with a minivan, but these days it’s two people with a much larger van!
Together, we have taught our circus arts programs to thousands of students and entertained countless audiences at festivals, fairs, and rodeos from Ontario to Vancouver Island and everywhere in between.
