GravityKids, the circus children of San Miguel
By Robin Loving Rowland
When I was a kid, the big deal was waiting all year for the circus to come to town, and the people in it were all adults. Here in San Miguel, the circus is alive all year ‘round for local youth, and they are the participants, not the observers. The troupe is called GravityKids, and they are the circus children of San Miguel.
