Patel students learn to clown around from circus pros


Published:   |   Updated: December 21, 2013 at 08:19 PM

Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus clowns and their attentive young students spent two hours Saturday reviewing juggling, improvisation, hat tricks and other skills at the Straz Center in Tampa.

It was the Patel Conservatory’s Clowning Skills Master Class.

After the clowns demonstrated their talents, the performing arts students — second- through sixth-graders — wrapped up the workshop by showing what they had learned.

The circus runs from Jan. 2-5 at the Forum in downtown Tampa.
