Everything I need to know I learned while juggling on a unicycle. This should be the motto for the members of Russian American Kids Circus. Instead of arithmetic and history, these six- to 16-year-olds are balancing poles, hoops, plates and each other on their heads, shoulders and backs as they juggle torches, bowling pins and whatever else they can find (dont worry, most of their performances are on the weekends or during school vacations, so they arent really playing hooky). The kiddos were trained by the veterans of the world-renowned Moscow Circus, who also taught them how to swing from trapezes and contort their bodies into shapes that would make any high school gymnastics coach drool.
