"If I wasn't instantly excellent at something, I wouldn't try it. I would be completely paralyzed by fear, and I wouldn't do it. Because, since I was naturally good at a lot of things, I couldn't stand the idea of being bad at something. I just wouldn't do it, wouldn't try it. Failure was not really an option, which means I didn't do much.
And when I first tried art, I made a horrible mess, and then was rewarded for it. That was everyone's favorite piece that I did. And I didn't know how to recreate a mistake, and I quit for 10 or 15 years..." - @bengriffithartist

Minggu ini kita mengajarkan trik-trik sirkus dasar seperti juggling club, ring dan formasi-formasi akrobatik kepada anak-anak dan remaja. Selama proses belajar, melalui komunikasi dan mengandalkan teman latihan, mereka tidak hanya belajar seni sirkus tapi juga bagaimana membangun kepercayaan satu satu lain, rasa percaya diri dan kerja tim yang baik.
This week we had a wonderful time teaching basic circus tricks, such as juggling clubs and rings, and acrobatic formations with the children. During the process through communication and dependence, they not only learned circus arts but also to build mutual trust, confidence and teamwork.
Actualización del Proyecto Trampolín! El día sábado 30 de junio nos tocó una tarde fresca. Nuevamente aprovechamos el espacio con el que cuenta el Barrio Los Ranqueles, por lo que iniciamos con el clásico canto: el Hey! Luego realizamos ejercicios con los distintos elementos, vamos viendo el progreso en el trabajo en equipo, ya que se apoyan entre ellos al momento de realizar los ejercicios. Sabemos que la base principal para trabajar en equipo es confiar y apoyarse mutuamente. Para finalizar la jornada hicimos la foto grupal, otra de nuestras tradiciones con los pequeños en el barrio.
Si querés acercarte a #SaltimbanquiGralAlvear y formar parte de este hermoso proyecto te esperamos los domingos a las 16:30 en la plaza Carlos María de Alvear!
Trampoline Project Update! On Saturday, June 30th, we had a fresh afternoon. Again we take advantage of the space that the neighborhood Los Ranqueles has, so we started with the classic song: The Hey! Then we do exercises with different elements, we are seeing the progress in the group, because they support each other to develop any exercise. We know that the main basis for teamwork is to trust and support each other. To end the day we took the group photo, another of our traditions with the little ones in the neighborhood.
