“I can say that Spaghetti Circus changed my life in so many ways. I think it played a big part in shaping who I became, growing up it gave me a special world outside of family and school, where I could express myself in a different way and discover my strengths and talents. I remember being pretty hopeless at lots of things when I first started spaghetti, I was so floppy I couldn’t do much, but then I discovered contortion and it gave me confidence in my body and self again. That’s what I think is so great about spaghetti circus for kids, no matter what your strengths or weaknesses are there is always something in that training room that will capture the imagination. Through whatever that may be spaghetti circus gives you a special skill that becomes yours and shapes you as an individual and a person as your growing into adulthood….”
