BEREA -- The St. Ignatius Circus Company began in 1985 with two students at the school who loved juggling. Now the company has approximately 25 members and performs at about 150 shows every year.
 Those performances will include the Grindstone Festival in Berea, where the group will appear from 5-7 p.m. July 6 during the Snores ’N Smores family campout.
Chris Laco, former member and now co-moderator of the company, said there are no coaches; the students teach one another. Each member performs in about 30 shows a year. Several former members are now performing professionally, including David Anthony and Billy the Kid.
Laco said the company began when a school musical needed jugglers.
two founders volunteered and, when the show was over, did not want to stop juggling. They made an announcement and found a small number of other boys who were interested.
The founders taught those boys how to juggle and, a few years later, started putting on shows. Since then, the company has grown significantly.
