It's Monday! Let's run away and join the circus!

Circus Artist Greg Kennedy has indeed run away to join the circus. Cirque du Soleil that is! Enjoy watching Greg juggle in a giant cone.

Greg Kennedy, now on tour with Cirque du Soleil's show, TOTEM, is the husband of Shana Kennedy, founder and Executive Director of the Philadelphia School of Circus Arts. Shana literally started her circus arts school in her back yard!

Shana chronicles her family's adventures traveling around with Cirque du Soleil in her blog Running Away With the Circus.

Does all this circus talk make you want to try juggling or swinging on a trapeze? Well, Philadelphia School of Circus Arts offers Introductory Workshops. Their 75-minute Intro to Circus Skills is a chance to try out trapeze, juggling, tightwire and plate-spinning; while their Intro to Aerials focuses on rope, trapeze and fabric.
