we are happy
to announce some new developments artists and events for our next ICC 2011.
Today we are presenting some ‘new faces’ and artists who will join us and
perform in in the Gala Shows at our convention.
One of them
from New Zealand. Mim’s passion in circus first came at the age of 11 when
she left artistic gymnastics and became involved with Seed Circus.
She trained and performed in various artistic genres, such as trapeze, hand
balancing and contortion. At the age of 16, Mim traveled to Turku, Finland
as a youth ambassador and trained at the Turku University of Applied
Sciences, in the Circus Arts program. After Turku she returned to her
original circus family - traveling and working with Seed Circus. Mim moved to
New Zealand in 2010 and completed a Diploma in Circus Arts.
Her specialties include Contortion, Hand-Balance, Aerial Straps, Aerial
Chains, Double Web, Dance and Adagio. We are so happy to be able to
unite and present such lovely young talents from all over the world. This is
a good occasion to extend a special THANK YOU to all of our artists
and participants who make this happen !!
Julia aka Zlata
In one of our earlier updates we mentioned that we will offer personal
photosessions with some artists such as Julia aka Zlata, Nina, Jana
and other artists who are interested in standing model for these shoots. We
will be attaching a registration form to this website within a few days - so
everyone who is interested can register for them. It is important to book
early, since the artists can only do a limited number of sessions
per day. So - if you are interested - make sure you register as soon as
Talking about these fees for extra activities - we
would like to explain a few things to you. We have been asked why
there is a general attendance fee and extra fees for some additional
activities on top. There is an easy explanation.
The general registration fee covers such costs
as booking the show room and convention rooms. It also covers the
costs (flight and hotel accommodation etc..) for some of our professional
artists who are happy to perform for us in our Gala Shows free of charge
but we need to pay for their expenses. Please consider that these
artists are not only performing free of charge for us - but are also taking
extra time out of their busy schedules missing other jobs they could take
during this time. So we really are very grateful to all of them. However -
and in order to compensate for their financial losses on a small scale - we
organize these photoshoots - so they can at least earn a little money as a
As most of you know, we are and always have been
promoting new talents. This is one of the prime goals of our conventions.
Some of these young talents also need some financial support, which we
provide for them. This is only a little insight information for those who
might have been wondering about the frame of our financial calculations to
put this event together.
Another most interesting workshop we
are offering is the workshop with Frederick and Jana. They will be
doing several workshops demonstrating active partner stretching with
Jana as a model. Both will be available for Q & A during their sessions.
We thought this might be an interesting workshop in the kind we have not
offered before. But we feel, that there might be a big interest in a
specific workshop like this - especially for those who like to learn more
about the dynamics of partner stretching. Photos can be taken during this
One more thing for today :
Cirque du Soleil

participants. Below you will find the deals they offer. If you have any

As we already mentioned before, there will also
be several delegates from Cirque du Soleil following the activities during
our convention looking for talents for their shows. Several TV-Stations and
other media have also already shown interest in covering our event.
