Acrobatic Artistes to mean all single acrobatic acts and troupes. Various styles and presentations including comic routines. Some modern conceptions are quite outstanding and, again, can trasfer from circus to nightclub.These must be the oldest form of circus entertainment along with jesting. Probably going far into the past long before touring circus or even the title ‘circus’! Acrobatics, juggling and balancing would be the very first visual arts along with the thespians with inventive routines. Just a thought; would the word juggling imply the juggling of ancent pots and jugs? The reason we seem to find so many broken pots?!
