Webers Circus comes to Sydney's Northern Beach
YOU do not have to run away to join the circus if you are in the Weber family.
Natalie and Rudy Weber, their siblings, three daughters, two grandchildren, son-in-law and nieces, along with their miniature ponies and dogs all call the big top home.
''We've been brought up in the circus all our lives,'' Mrs Weber says. ''My father and mother had a circus and the same with my husband's family; they were brought up in a circus in Germany.
''When we met we decided to then put our own circus together. ''I trained all my children and my brother-in-law's children as well.''
A troupe of South American performers, including the contortionist Miguel Santa who can squeeze into a glass bottle, have joined the show, which is at Boondah Reserve on Sydney's northern beaches.
It is a fast-paced show with a focus on traditional circus tricks, such as trapeze performers, jugglers, clowns, hula hoopers, and salsa dancers in bright, cascading skirts.
