CHS Convention in Cincinnati
Fred Dahlinger provided an overall look at the Golden Age of the Circus, using his own thoughts and the thoughts of several fellow historians. This was a really interesting discussion utilizing several view points and some discussion as well.
I performed from 1973 to 1995 with a couple years off in between. I did an aerial cradle act for three years, low wire as a clown, trained llamas, ponies, then lions and tigers for 15 years. I am now a firefighter, a member of the Circus Historical Society and an author of several circus and carnival related subjects.
