This is the street leading to the Teatro Taller in downtown Bogota, Colombia. The Presidential Palace and main Goverrnment buildings are only five blocks away.

Giovanni practices every day under the tent.

Lilly is under the same tent ready for a workout.

Even though they get minimal support from the government, they host three groups a year of underpriveleged youths. Each group lasts for 6-8 weeks. These young people realize that this is their only chance to stay off the streets and get a type of career. I see them taking it very seriously.

Besides equipment, props and instruments, t-shirts would be greatly appreciated - especially if they promote some juggling/actobatics/circus entity (like yours!)
