Three years at CWM made me a real traditionalist, and I keep remembering Bob Parkinson saying, "I want the people to see what the circus used to be, not what it is today. That's what this site is about!

carmen del molino made a fantastic entrance with her trapese act -- she was the epitome of style and class with her cape and all the little things she did before climbing up the web. she had a special way of kicking off her high heels and twirling the rope -- she always got more applause with her entrance than most acts ever got at the end. Such a beautiful performer and a beautiful person. she was the perfect centerpiece for a big aerial ballet.
