No human has not been fascinated by the dome of the circus, the arena lights, the glittering costumes, especially the talent of artists. Times have passed when the circus came to town was a real feast. Now, the performances offered by the circus artists enjoy more children. A proof of this impressive number of kids posed watching agape as fierce bears, dressed in shorts or skirt flirt, do somersaults, and finally to thank the public through a clumsy curtsy. Then, at the end of the show, children crowd to take pictures with a python for a few meters or stay perched on a crocodile. What you like most about the circus? Pets? Acrobatics? Perhaps swallowing of swords? I like all so much, each has his charm! Clowns? Since Roman times, the circus was one of the most accessible means of entertainment. Evolution circus was held, but on different planes, each continent own printer footprint.

Even you were kid, never go to a circus show? Every year, i used to call clowns to my sons birthday, to make kids have fun, they say now, when they are big, that this are the best memories.

me was afraid of clowns, but I remember my father once took me backstage at the circus, and asked them to paint my face and then put a mirror to my face, then i laughed, and all fear vanished...

Circus was really the most fascinating show in my child -hood days. I really enjoyed the circus - as they do many feats which we even did not dream about. As days by the circus shows are getting slow down. Pity on the circus performers.They spend lots of hours practicing and learning so many new things for which they are not paid properly. Any how I pity the owners too as they invest huge amounts for transportation carrying from one place to another.

A very rare idea any one has - but just to see the world you wanted to join the circus team - Wow, thee are many methods to see the world, but any how during childhood we have several dreams -it is a dream world,which I also experienced. But I have no real about the circus life,why means I hve seen that they spend their life in small tents arranged at the back of the circus and the arrangements are also not up to the standard. That is what I have seen,.

I went to the circus once and it was a lot of fun. But I don't go any more. I don't like how they treat their animals.

Now you are right, this is also my problem, not like they keep animals enclosed there, but I like lights, bright costumes, those working on trapeze.

It's very seldom that we have circus in our country. I believe that we do have them during Christmas season. I had been to one when I was a kid but I prefer going to arcades or gaming area of the circus. Animals fascinated me but not the performers. Clowns used to scare me instead of making me laugh.

I haven't been to a circus in... eleven years, I think? My favorite part was always the animals. I adore animals, although now I think circus life might not be the best life for them. I was always kind of terrified of clowns, although I really don't know why. Acrobats made me nervous... I was afraid they would hurt themselves. But, overall, I tended to enjoy myself when I went to the circus.

When I was a little girl we used to have a circus visit town every year and my parents used to take me and my brother along as a treat. I used to enjoy seeing all the glitz and glamour, the highwire walkers and trapeze were my favourites.

The circus has a character of its own and it surely makes a great experience and outing. I went 2 or 3 times to the circus with my parents and friends when i was a child. Lately there is a lot of controversy about circus in my country due to animal issues. I would like to take my children there sometime as it is a memorable experience as i do remember when i went myself as achild. I do hope that animals are traeted well though when they are trained.

I like the acrobatics in the circus. The people who do gymnastics on the high wire or trapeze. Sometimes they have a lot of people doing balancing displays just on the ground too. The clowns are funny as well. Once we went to a circus on Ice in Wembley. There were the best clowns I have ever seen. Not only did they throw themselves about and do hilarious visual jokes but they did it all wearing ice skates. Not entirely sure what you mean about printers footprints? Did you mean each have their own style depending on the country?

We dont have the circus here in our place and I also dont like watching circus shows. If we have an amusement park here, I'd rather ride the horror train or the roller coaster but I will never go to a circus show. The main reason for that is I dont like those shows. They are jot very interesting for me especially clowns. I dont like clowns and they are not funny. I sometimes think they are corny.

I've been to about a dozen circuses. When I was a kid they were really popular and this was before animals were taken out of the acts so teh ones I saw when I was a kid were the traditional type of circuses. Now as an adult I've been to Cirque Du Soliel, which obviously has no animals and is more about theatre and acrobatics.
