Advanced Studies 1993

Back in the summer of 1993 I spent a very wonderful week immersed in clowning in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia.  Advanced Studies II in the Performance Art of Clowning was organized by two well known and beloved masters of circus clowning: Glenn "Frosty" Little and Leon "Buttons" McBryde, both of whom were veterans of the Ringling Brothers Barnum and Bailey Circus. The week-long session covered many aspects of clowning for most any level of clown performer and is where I got my first taste of circus clowning in a class taught by Frosty Little. He taught a group of us a construction gag involving chair falls, board hits and pratfalls that was so much fun. That was a fun week. Click on any of the images for a bigger image.
