Frenchy’s circus skills last hurrah

Kahu Youth worker Claire ‘Frenchy’ French is throwing a workshop day for Mount Aspiring College students to celebrate her time in Wanaka.

After almost two years at Kahu Youth, Frenchy, pictured, will leave town to join the Wandering Circus Troupe, an eclectic group of national and international performers travelling the country.

“It's my final hurrah before I run away with the circus,” she said.

The event, open to Year 7 to 10 students, will host 15 of the troupe’s international teachers and 90 workshops on Thursday, November 22 including tasters in poi, hula hoop, juggling and contact juggling to name a few.

Students are asked to bring a koha donation in support of the Kahu Youth Trust.

“The last two years with Kahu Youth has been great, the kids are so amazing and I've been involved in so many fun projects, groups and community events. It's really nice to be able to give back to such a great trust before I head off on tour,” Frenchy said.
"The tutors and performers are the best of the best. They're exceptionally skilled and are super excited about sharing their skills.”
