Abigail flies high

We are very proud of Abigail Garner (J3D) who recently spent the day at the Royal Albert Hall with the Cirque du Soleil. 

Abigail was invited to the London venue as a Blue Peter VIP and sharp-eyed viewers may have spotted her performing with the world-famous troupe on Friday’s edition of the show.

Having trained in aerial sport for five years as a way of strengthening her hyper mobile joints, Abigail was excited to meet and train with the trapeze artists before going through full hair and make-up before taking to the stage. 

She said: “It was the best day of my life and I will never forget it.

“I learned so much from the Cirque du Soleil team which will help me on my career path. Particularly how important languages are in Circus and touring theatre, so I will be keeping up with my Spanish and Mandarin, and look forwards to starting French in J4!

“It was a magical day which has helped me to realise that my dream of being a circus performer is possible if I keep up with my hard work and training.”
