Bayou Cirque has brought 4 flow performers to kick off our cosplay show. They will be performing with Hoop and poi as they show off the skills of firebending and waterbending.
My name is Alex Gabel I am 15 and I am a fire juggler for Bayou Cirque. I am a student at lee high school I am set up to be the captain of the robotics team next year. I have been with Bayou Cirque since the day it started. If 2 years ago you told me I would be in the circus I would’ve called you a liar. I have been training with flow props for about a year and been doing them on fire for about half of that I have been juggling for around 4-5 months and been fire juggling for 1-2 months. One of the things I tell people often is, “Your parents may have told you not to play with fire well, mine forgot one day.” I like to think that you are never done training with a prop there is always something you can do better and you are never the best when you think you are the best someone shows up better. I train everyday I juggle at school, at home, at work, just about every where I am never without a prop.
