Expertise

Thayr has been touring and performing since the age of 10. Thayr excelled in the circus arts under the expert tutelage of performers from the Romanian State Circus. Thayr's interest in circus involves Rolla-Bolla Balance, Aerials, Juggling, Unicycle, Stilts, Acrobatics and Comedy. Thayr is also an accomplished stunt-man, having worked on numerous Hollywood films and TV shows (imdb.com/name/nm2401762).

Experience in the area

At a young age I started touring with my parents, musicians and artists, working at various festivals and Renaissance Faires. I was enamored with the entertainers and street performers and over the years befriended many of them and began to learn the trade. I eventually came to a point in my studies that I sought out a performance school. After considering many schools I choose a course with the Academy of Circus Arts in England. I excelled under the tutorage of Romanian State Circus performers, Gheorge Tache and Marius Ionescu. I now continue to practise, perform, and refine my skills in the performance arts.

I can't really answer your question as my knowledge only goes back as far as my own career and my teachers. However, you may be able to find what you're looking for on some of these sites:    www.circushistory

When you're posing during a routine it's called complimenting, some performers don't compliment enough whereas others over do it. I'd say you generally want to do a compliment if you do something that
