Webers Circus comes to Wagga

PERFORMING dogs, Rio dancers, acrobats and clowns have arrived in Wagga to entertain residents at the circus over the next two weeks.Webers Circus began setting up its big top at Bolton Park yesterday ahead of tonight's first performance.The circus is on a tour of southern NSW and will make Wagga its home until May 1.Performer Wonita Weber said unlike other circuses, Webers did not use exotic animals in its show and only featured miniature ponies and trained dogs."We only use domestic animals so I guess we are more environmentally friendly," she said.Circus-goers will also be treated to Australia's best wheel of danger, according to Ms Weber, while traditional circus acts such as clowns and acrobats will be on hand to keep the audience entertained.Dancer Emma Hodge, who joined the circus this year, said one of the best things about Webers was that while most of the troop was family, many performers who had joined the troop had amazing skills.She said many of the circus' acrobats had represented Australia at gymnastics.
